Leaving it plugged in is not likely to reduce the adapters lifespan - if anything it may extend it, as electronics tend to fail when the stresses are greatest, and that it's when they are turned on and off. With modern batteries it is unlikely to reduce the lifespan of that either - the dreaded "memory effect"they used to suffer from is pretty much gone as well.
It'll use power, but not that significant an amount provided it is a good one - if it gets hot then you are better off within it anyway.
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
