Just wondering if this originated when I joined this site.

I hope you mean email spam, outside the Forum and not PM spam from internally.  Is your email address visible to other users? Check your profile settings.  There are spam bots that can spider the internet for email addresses...

I used, a couple of years ago Lots of it! At first I could not figure it out because  my pc does not display cyrillic. But it has thinned out considerably and now I get justt 1 or 2 a month, and they go directly to the bulk folder.

Yes, my email address is on my profile (at least, I see it when I click my profile) and I seem to have received an avalanche of spam following my last several visits here.  I did visit a lot of other Russian sites, but they can't have obtained my email as I was only browsing.
