Drowning in Heriot-Watt spam

As if daily real estate offers via email and sms were not enough, today I have a message in my inbox from Heriot-Watt University, Dubai.
Poorly written, poorly formatted and totally irrelevant to me – an appalling advert from a supposedly reputable British University.
It doesn’t surprise me when the Lucky Happy Star Royal Realty Estatings FZ LLC company send me semi-comprehensible adverts for warehouse space in Jebel Ali, annoying though it is. Quite why Heriot-Watt thinks this sort of thing is acceptable is beyond me.
How did my Sun address get given to every spam-artist in Dubai? My suspicions lie with my mortgage company…
