I registered a few new domains a little over a week ago. Just got a spam e-mail from a cookie cutter web design shop offering services for one of the domains.

First time for me for this type of spam. Maybe people have been doing it for a while? I haven't registered new domain names for some time.

Oh, I've been getting those for a while. The spam is being sent to the email address I have in the registrar info.

I first noticed an increase in that topic about half a year ago. Before that, the same domain was getting a lot of invitations for romantic opportunities.

Huh. My own most recently registered domain promptly got a parking-advertising spam. ("Why let the host collect the money when you can keep it yourself"-- yeah, for the six Ukrainian robots who visit on a typical day.) They must have crawled during the 24 hours or so after the DNS kicked in but before I replaced the host's placeholder page.

the same domain was getting a lot of invitations for romantic opportunities

:: odd mental picture involving robot propositioning server ::
