Where is my Spam?

I maintain & update a Web Site for a Duplicate Bridge club.

For the past two years, the site received 20 to 50 or more Spam E-Mails per day.

For the last 2-3 weeks, there has been hardly any Spam sent to that site: 0 to 10 per day.

Are Spam producers getting smarter and removing non-responsive sites from their lists>

I have not installed any Spam filters.

BTW: Nobody surfs the Web from this site. It is used by Club directors to send results so that I can post them.

I still get about the same amount of Spam sent to my AOL Inbox.

Mike: I do not use Spam filters because I am afraid to miss E-mail that I want to see.

Isn't that a good thing?

It is a good thing if results from Club Directors are not discarded.

I would rather spend some time each day deleting Spam than miss E-mail from some friend of years gone by sending from an obscure Site tagged as a Spam producer.

So now you think that it's just not Spam that you're no longer receiving but also those you would want to read, right?
Well, if you didn't do anything (filtering and the like), then I don't think there's reason to worry. You could try it out in an experiment. Send yourself some emails from somewhere and see if you get them.
