Come on - you think they use a *real*, working email address?

Apple Mail lets you return mail as if it's bounced to try to give the
spammers the idea that yours is a non-valid address (although what
incentive there is for them to cleanse their lists when it's a
near-non-marginal cost for them to keep sending I don't know). I've got a
*lot* of bounces back from those.
