I'm so cross and fear I may be becoming a little unhinged and deranged hence the AIBU!!

I have a perfectly lovely email address, simple (no numbers just my name) non offensive and have used it for years and years so it would be a real PITA to change, now ... some bastard has sold it to a bastarding SPAM company! despite me being really careful about unchecking the 'we may sell your email address to carefully selected companies ... blah blah'. boxes whenever I buy anything (I swear it was the Sun bloody holidays!)

I'm getting in excess of 25 emails a day ranging from 'Wink fucking Bingo' to the usual PPI crap, I feel like every time I block one lot another come sneaking through.

My name is the same as a very well known, well loved celebrity, who happens to have 7.3million twitter followers, I appear to have emailed all the companies that are advertising this way threatening to let my 7.3million twitter followers what wank badgers they are, signing off with my name (I'm not impersonating anyone, just exaggerating my twitter popularity!) unless they remove me from their lists and grass up the fuckers who sold them my email address in the first place.

I'm losing the plot and need to stop now don't I!!?

I go to lengths to track down the email addresses of the CEOs and other key people of the companies sending the spam. I forward the spam to them. It soon stops.
