    So...signed up for Bluehost and WordPress. The "spam" is all offers to design my web site. But it's been relentless.....email plus phone calls...asking for my by name. Is this par for the course? Any way to avoid all this? I have spam blockers/Robokill, etc. Still getting TONS of this.

    I've merged both of your threads together. Pelase do not start more than one for the same issue.

    I have never had that but then again I don't use Bluehost. This is more likely to be people monitoring new sign ups at the hosting company rather than anything to do with Wordpress. Unfortunately Spam is one of those things that we have to live with. There are various email tools that you can use to minimise it.
