Are you sure that they have harvested your email address through the
registry? Spammers use dictionary attacks and joe-jobs on mailservers these
days and could easily have found your address that way. All your mailserver
had to do was accept the email as they scanned addresses.

I am not necessarily disagreeing with your opinion on protection of email
addresses... just reminding you that there are other means of harvesting
your email address.
