First spam to hit my gMail account

Well, it had to happen, I received my first spam in my gMail account today (actually I received it 5 times in the space of about a minute, but hey, they were all the same). This was to be expected, as I've already made my email address public by entering it in a previous post, mainly to try and attract spammers to see how well gMail's spam filter works.

So, how well does filter work? A little too well so far actually. Most of the subscriptions emails I've signed up for have arrived in the spam pot, and as there is no visual indication that emails are in there, I have to remember to check periodically. Though no real spams have made it into my inbox, yet.
