Never use your real email address in newsgroups. There are tools spammers use to "walk" the message threads to "harvest" email addresses.

yea, I saw that after I read your post. Makes one wonder why someone would go through all that trouble to post nonsensical gibberish. It's probably some adolescent that wrote a clever program that puts random words into sentences and paragraphs and then posts its output to the NG overnight.

1. Get rid of OE.
2. Go to Um...it's been a while...Tools? then accounts, then news then choose the profile. Chances are, if you used the easy set up, the profile name IS your email addy. Click preferences (it's been a while..Settings?), change the profile name to something like Default or something generic, and change the e-mail addy. If you look at my headers, you'll see my e-mail addy appears as snipped-for-privacy@ae86.GTS. Would that I could...
OR, add the phrase NOSPAM, like: snipped-for-privacy@NOSPAMae86.GTS. Then, for the people in the group that would LIKE to contact you, we would remove the NOSPAM, but the Spam machines can't. I would imagine, though that shortly someone will defeat this little trick. Another one I have seen is: snipped-for-privacy@YOURPANTIESae86.GTS. Then, you have to remove YOURPANTIES to respond! ;)
Or, make it a little more compilcated, and add a space, or a _ or a / or something that a HUMAN would know to remove but a machine might get hung on. But, these guys are getting clever, so adding an extra . might work better, like:
snipped-for-privacy@yada.com
Since a LOT of businesses use the 'dot', like when I was at GE:
snipped-for-privacy@ge.medical.com
the machines will think the . is normal and try to send with it in, and it will bounce.
Adding just about any word will throw them off.
Good Luck!

Google HipCrime. HipCrime was a usenet troll that developed a program that would take snippets of text and load up newsgroups like this.
However, this one particular person may not be real bright, since all the messages have the same IP. So, contacting the holder of the IP address should stop this activity, and possibly land the perp in jail for a while.
