Spam is everywhere and everyone gets it (especially professors), but I noticed that my personal email does not get much spam. How can I get more?
What are the most common ways of getting spam? Not just by forgetting to unsubscribe from a mailing list, but also how do hackers get access to email addresses?
Spammers will "scrape" the internet for email addresses and use programs to collect millions of addresses. Or just download them.
If you want your email address to be picked up by spammers, you need to expose your email in multiple different places. The common targets for spammers are social media sites and places like pastebin.
