I started getting spam in Icelandic < 24 hours after my account was set
up. I get Russian, Chinese, and Hebrew spam all the time. The most spam
I receive is from an old domain that I turned off the MX records. Every
now and then I turn them back on to see what's flowing and it never
changes. Within seconds.

[obOp] I think that the language change defeats many of the heuristics
found in common spam appliances.
