email exposure and spam

I registered for the new chowhound yesterday, and this morning the email address I used had a fair amount more spam than usual. I don't see anywhere on the site that my email address is listed publicly, but it seems like an amazing coincidence. Has anyone else had this experience? Is there some way to get a user's email address that I'm not seeing (but that spammers are)?

  1. I have not received ANY spam since signing up. I do not use my private email address- have a yahoo email that I use. No problems so far

    1. The email address you used to register is visible only to moderators and engineering team for Chowhound. Any increase in spam is not a result of registering here.

      1. OK, thanks, it must have just been a fluke. glad it was just a coincidence.
