I just started recieving several spam at my gsc game world registered email address. This email is not being used for anything else

Is this related to the fact that GSC is gonna close shop ?

Anyone coming here to your post or profile can easily see what the
e-mail address that you have provided that is public knowledge. Just
because you receive something does not mean it has to do with GSC.

Email addresses are visible to everyone here — notice the "email" link above every message. So, if you want to send someone a private message, just fire off an email. It looks like some spammers have on occasion used these addresses, but it has not been a major problem. I don't get any spam, and my email has been visible since 2002. (granted, my email provider has excellent spam filters)

Sounds like that caused you a bit of panic. Are you a classified government project or something?

I don't think your real identity is accessible, so even if you're some teen pop star hiding out here from hordes of spotty, screaming girlies, you still shouldn't get much in your inbox.

The junk mail senders don't do much individual address collecting. They just buy the entire registers of towns and cities from the local government offices. It is your local council who is giving your details to those who fill your inboxes with garbage. At least, it is in the UK.
