    I have a domain that I had pretty much forgotten about, purchased through namecheap with whois protection.

    I've just received an email mentioning my exact domain, there is nothing on the domain linking to me or my email address as I only used it for a url shortener.

    The email is from a Tobias Stephan, how the fuck did he get my personal email address???

    Oh I have never promoted this domain in any way because as stated, it was used some time ago with a url shortening script and nothing else.

    In case you do not plan to sell it just send him a pic of your dick.

    Damn the rhymes.

    I've gotten emails like this. If people send a message to the protected email address, it will forward it to you.

    No plans to sell, it's only an .xyz domain but it has a decent name which could be useful for a number of possible projects if I decide to build another site.

    What? No, I mean if people send a message to his registrant email (the long, protected one), whois protection will forward it to him.
