I would say that your email address just got sold to a new spam source 
or two.  I got rid of almost all of my spam by starting to use a 
disposable address in conjunction with a change of my main address. Now 
anytime I have to give a email as part of a sign-up I give a yahoo 
address. My main email has not had a single spam in 3 months. My isp 
does run a filter so that may have something to do with it. I only look 
at the yahoo account when expecting a confirmation email. It gets dozens 
of spams a week
