    In general - no.
    From exhibitors (that I spoke to) no.
    Pre-show-junk from exhibitors I didnt speak to - a little

    If your spam is on the increase, it just means you've not lowered the threshold far enough on your filters

    I always say the best way to reduce your choice of spam is to not give it to anyone.

    I have had one email address for over 10 years and I have never received one piece of spam (with no filters set).
    I have also never given this email address to anyone, nor is it an easy email address to even guess. The only real bummer is that unless I email myself I won't even receive an email......
