10,000 + spam messages

Is anyone else getting spammed furiously at the moment? Most of my spam goes straight into my Gmail spam folder -- Gmail has a pretty good filter. But because of the odd bit of bleed-through into my Inbox, one can spot trends and I noticed this morning that I had received over 10,000 (ten thousand) spam messages since last night. That is a seriously large amount, isn't it? Good thing I didn't have to delete them all manually.

I have a gmail account and i am not getting hit like that. Is your gmail address posted anywhere online? on the duke website, or NTGateway? That may explain it.

Thanks for the comments. Danny: everything forwards to the Gmail address -- Duke, etc., but it's the latter that generates most of the spam.
