A blow to creativity

Creativity has suffered a blow today. Previously I told friends that I had an infinite number of email addresses to choose from. Since 2000 I have owned a personal domain and had what is known as a catch-all address. Any email sent to the domain was forwarded to my gmail account, regardless of the username. This resulted in a lot of spam, but gmail handled it. This morning, in a couple of hours, I received 2000 spam messages. Only 100 got through to my inbox. That is actually a pretty good spam filter. It caught 95% of the spam. But I decided enough is enough. The number of email addresses through which I will still receive email has just dropped significantly.
