[CQ-Contest] Spam via Contesting.com address

Is anyone else with a contesting.com alias getting a sudden flurry of 
spam?  The messages purport to come from well-known retailers like 
Sears, Kohl's, Costco, etc., and try to get you to complete a survey or 
otherwise click on links in the e-mail.  The tip-off is that the "from" 
e-mail address is different each time and something completely 
unrelated, typically what sounds like a small business address.

I don't know if someone hacked contesting.com and got its list of 
aliases, or if it's just me.  It's not as if I've been secretive about 
the alias, and I've had it for a long time.
