I don't share that email address, so I would have to have annoyed my evil self.  :LOL

I'll wait another day or so before I respond to Cocoon, but I will follow up with them.

Not sure what is meant by:

"Ghostery sees two trackers at Dell Community -- one of those is also reported by NoScript."

Ron, did you let Cocoon know, just in case they are still investigating?

Only 2 messages ever appeared in the disposable email address in-box and both were from Cocoon.

The first was a "Welcome to Cocoon" message. The second from them was a message about fixing a problem some users were having with Cocoon. (I didn't experience that particular problem.)

So the results are, at best, inconclusive because I don't know if the ISP hosting the disposable email account was flitering out any spam before it landed in the in-box. 

Since the initial torrent of spam to my personal address, there's been no more. To be clear, I haven't logged in with that address since the spam appeared.  Curiously, I never received their email about fixing that problem at my personal email address. Don't know what that means.

I'll relay my findings to Cocoon and the disposable email account can be closed.

The e-mail server does ZERO filtering. I have it set that way because I do all my own filtering locally. So you can be assured anything addressed to that e-mail and sent made it.

I will leave the account open till you here back from Cocoon. That way if you need to do some testing you can. It costs nothing.

Ron,
Has this issue been resolved with Cocoon? If so, can you share the outcome here so that the public can decide whether or not it wants to support Cocoon?
