I often get close to 100 spam messages a day.  And I'm
not talking about junk mail from real businesses.  I'm
talking real spam - the same message multiple times
but the from account varies, often by one or two
characters.  Usually they're from japan or russia but
the actual domain doesn't exist of course.

I could easily miss a post
