    What is the point of spam?

    This has always fascinated me: now that 98% of all internet traffic (one stat which I have read… seems a bit high; but an astounding statistic, whatever it is) is illegal emails offering services or product to potential 'customers' which - in the likely even that they were to 'buy' - they'd never receive, how do spammers make any money at all? What do they really get out of it, if we assume that an almost infinitesimally small %age of all those spammed - after 25 years of this - are ever taken in? It's a mystery to me; I might even be able to tolerate it a bit better (well, perhaps not!) if I could see why the spammers do it. Anyone any ideas, please? TIA…
