Because it's rude not to?

Honestly, are people's spam filters that bad that they can't handle this, or 
is mine so bad in the other direction, that unbeknownst to me, I'm missing 
most of the private mail I get?

I always use my real email address on all the email lists I'm subsrcribed to, 
and also on usenet, and also on all web based message boards.

And yet, I at most I get about 20 unsolicited commercial emails per day, more 
typically only about 5 per day.

Again, since I seem to be the only one not worried about this problem, I 
wonder if I'm somehow missing valid emails. But I don't think so, because I 
haven't had any such complaints.

So, what gives? What's the magical difference about my ISP that I don't have 
to make life difficult for other people by mangling my email address, and 
making them go through contortions to reply to me?
