The guys didn't need to work very hard to obtain our data. (My understanding is that) all the mails from this list are publicly available at the R-help archives. You will find yourself here:

http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/e4/help/08/03/index.html

That is why we can (and must) browse through the history of the mail-list to avoid asking again an already-answered question. The bad side is that our name and email address are exposed.

just in case: I have nothing to do with the spammers
