    The Dutch magazine "PC-Active" has an article about it in its March-issue.

    You can type your email-address in the field and click on "Zoek".

    I tried it, and yes I was on one of those CDs according to that site.
    A message in red color in Dutch comes up :
    "Dit e-mailadres staat op de spam-cd's".
    In English this means (translation by me):
    "This email-address is listed on the SPAM CDs".
