Spam e-mail with a Trojan twist!

I have had it with these idiot emails - they come as many as fifty a day - from a variety of different "people"
So now I'm going to Google these two...  there are many "Faith Chang"... let's try Caroline Jenkins... too many of them as well... time to narrow the search... I entered "Caroline Jenkins holidayslice.info" and discovered a LOT of people are looking for her. The company that sent the email apparently made up the names...
Your search - 441723@holidayslice.info - did not match any documents.
Your search - 865115@holidayslice.info - did not match any documents.
But NOW we're getting somewhere! DANGER! Since these other bloggers posted about this scam, there's a NEW ADDITION - a TROJAN!
So the problem is twofold: annoying emails that come many times a day - and if you open the email to send out a response - you could be opening a door for a virus to hop on to your computer - luckily my antivirus stopped it as soon as I opened the email... ANYONE who can figure out the real address of these numbskulls... until then all we can do is...

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
