I would be extremely surprised if you did. Spammers typically use software "bots" that trawl public access web pages, collecting literally millions of email addresses. However, these bots are nowhere near smart enough to register themselves on message forums (especially custom-built ones like this one), and I think it's really unlikely that anyone's going to take the trouble to do it manually. If, on the other hand, you put your email address in a post, I can almost guarantee that your inbox will start filling up with spam within a few weeks. I've had the same hotmail address for two years now, and so far I get about two spam emails a week, even though I've used this address to register with a number of different forums. I'm pretty sure that the emails I do get were just lucky hits by a random address generator.
