For the past few weeks, my spam filter has been getting ~120 pieces of spam a day, which is rather a lot to look over and check for the occasional misfiled non-spam email.
As such, I have permanently retired my former email address. As of a few minutes ago, the email address email@example.com is no longer connected; all mail sent there will bounce.
(Note: if you must include me in any group emails, use the Bcc: line for addresses, not the Cc: line. The difference is that addresses in the Bcc: line don't show up in the email messages sent.)
