Anybody else noticed an increase with the junk e-mails in their inbox ever since they signed up for the free DivX for a day offer?

It's crazy now, it jumped from none to 5 junk emails a day!

I'm not surprised. They have this sort of thing in their history. When Divx 5 first came out, they offered two versions of the "pro" package: one for $20, and one for free with adware & spyware.

Well, I noticed nothing like that. Just downloaded the app and installed it. Maybe you have to clean your system of spyware?

I haven't been receiving spam after signing up for that offer (from them or otherwise), though I was expecting some.:)

I got extra mail accounts for download stuff, if I notice that the account is spammed, I delete it.

No nuisance mail here. Perhaps you missed the tickbox opting out of correspondence when you downloaded the software? I think I remember seeing one. :shrug:

Ditto. I wouldn't be able to wade through all the spam to my actual e-mails otherwise..."spam filter" my arse.

Yeah me too. Just don't ask why I haven't used it, especially for that...
