    When you reg a domain and you get the usual spam on it when it's just been regd, where do the spammers get their lists? is it when I list on sedo on some sort of 'latest additions' or by them checking a whois resource of recently acquired domains. How do they do it?

    With .coms the details are made pretty public. With .co.uk's if it is a domain that has been previously used then you will get a backlog of spam retries hit you. It wouldn't surprise me if sedo was scraped as well, I have seen very bizarre ways of getting hold of email addresses by spammers in the last couple of months.
    I also wouldn't be surprised if a few of the cheaper registries sold off lists of domains.

    It's not previous spam, it's targetted at newly regd domains, it's either via sedo or they watch another site like nominet whois or deleting etc.
