I am tempted to try this test:

Set up an email as a catch-all so that I get anything sent to
'*@mydomain.Info". Then post a message on usenet with
anyname@mydomain.Info and see if after the '*@mydomain.Info".gets
harvested dictionary blasts are used.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: You might very well, and certainly
dictionary attacks are common enough, but it is far more likely,
IMO, one or more spams within a few minutes of opening the account
is more that likely a devious registrar employee who has a deal
on the side of his own with some spammer operation. PAT]
