Article: spam – The Scourge of E-mail

Recommended Posts

...Excerpts:

NewScientist published an interesting graphic showing a timeline of spam activities and events. A couple of notable takeaways from this graphic:
  • Early indicators are that legal enforcement is slowing to possibly leveling the growth of spam. It is clear that major enforcement wins cause a significant decline in spam for a short period of time. It will be interesting to see if continued enforcement happens and if it will force an overall decline.
  • <snip>
  • User education may have hit its limits. With only .1% of the users actually clicking on the link in the e-mail, it is doubtful that a more intensive education effort could reduce that percentage significantly.

Alas, that 0.1% is more than enough to keep the spammers in business :(

Cheers!
