Poker Players Alliance address leaked to spammers

I give every organization that I'm involved with a unique, tagged address. For example, if I'm doing business with Amazon, I might give them amafoo123@MYDOMAIN. This lets me track with absolute certainty where my email address is being leaked.

Today I received spam sent to my PPA email address. There's a slightly-munged copy of the message at the end.

At this point, the PPA should be considered either evil or insecure.
