SinkYaDrink and the spam they generate.

Adland: 

With this I would like to apologize to all the webheads who might have followed my link to the SinkYaDrink back in June while I was guestblogging at coudal.com. As I'm a paranoid webhead I did enter the competition after sinking several hundred drinks, and let the site know who I was by filling in a false email "drink" at one of my domains, and real name.
Naturally I didn't win anything, I fear my few hundred drinks record was beat within hours, what a shame. But I did win some SPAM! Yes! Spam! It seems preloaded.com have no qualms about selling email addies gathered via their games to spammers as these days, six months later, that "drink" email I only used on their site is getting lots of offers like cashing chips with the gaming club from Promotions@GamingClubSportsbook.com which doesn't interest me in the least. Shame on preloaded, but I can't say that I'm surprised, it seems that all the fun games and competitions lately are just a way to gather fresh emails.

    Ptjaaaa (swedish untranslatable noise). Well I gotta shut down that account now as it's been flooded today with Spam from gamingclubsportsbook.com and all sorts of chips/games/poker crap.

    So listen up people do not give your real email to anything that Preloaded created effing spam-sickos. In fact, don't even bother to play their games.
