What I find interesting is that I didn't get all that much spam from my 
small collection of domains.  Of course, the e-mail addresses associated 
with those domains is "admin at" (and "abuse at"). 
Indeed, abuse is completely ignored by spammers, while admin gets a 
couple of pieces of Far East spam a week.  That's right, a week.

I bought privacy service now, as well as renewal protection.  I've lost 
three domains, and don't want to lose any more.
