A few days ago, I changed the setting on my Twitter profile to "Let others find me by my email address." Well, suppose a spammer already knows my email address. A bot then goes to Twitter, searches for and finds me, then follows me, and then sends an HTML email to me!

I've gotten about ten of these - I've turned the setting off to prevent further shots. Is this something organized, or am I just lucky?
