I once used an email address 1 time on Usenet. It doesn't get more or
less spam then others. Email lists are merged, etc.

This is already done. Spamtraps are easier to set up then an spam free

Nah, people just buy a few million email addresses, and don't care if
there are spam traps or not. How does one check for such a thing? Ages
ago there was stuff like webposion (sp?). A CGI script that created a
page with hundreds of fake (well, let's hope that was the case)
addresses to lessen the value of email addresses. But if you can buy
millions of them on CD, why bother.
Personally I guess people will move more and more to IM. MSN Messenger
(now Live Messenger) is going to get off line message sending abilities.
