Stickam: Reasons to use custom addresses  
Stickam either had addresses stolen or someone sold addresses as the account I use specifically for Stickam (that I haven't used in forever, btw), is getting grips of spam all of a sudden. Unfortunately the addresses they're coming from are valid, so spam scores are low so Spam Assassin isn't blocking them.

stickam >> /dev/null

I'd be worried the spammers will figure out the "." trick though, as they did the +. The way Yahoo! did it gets around that (but annoying) in that they made you pick a secondary address.

I still use my hosted email server, so I just setup forwards. My Stickam addy just got sent to ":fail:", which is supposed to reject it during smtp.

They really need to update the smtp protocol to provide for a shock to be sent across the line that will light the spammer on fire.

Yes, that would be good.
