The email address I have had since 1997, firstname.lastname@example.org, has finally been retired. So if that address is still in your addressbooks, better delete it now. It was a hard decision to close that address since it's been with me for such a long time, but I find myself with little choice. With 1000+ emails a week, 99% of which is fucking spam, dealing with all that just to keep the address has become more trouble than it was worth. Sure I can open the address again, maybe a year from now if I liked, but not before I take down all the links to that email online so the robots wouldn't be able to harvest it anymore. After a year hopefully it will be all cleaned out.
