Drop in submissions?

Recommended Posts

Looking at the Statistics page, it had been interesting to note that the number of spams submitted in April and May had been increasing rapidly. But I just noticed that, as of June, it's back to pre-2004 levels. (http://alpha.cesmail.net/graphics/spamyear.gif) Does anyone have any ideas why? I know my spam load hasn't decreased significantly this month.

I realize that this graph reflects the number of spams submitted to and reports sent by Spamcop, so it reflects usage more than spam traffic, but I can't see any reason for such a sudden decrease.

Well, one of my accounts has seen a noticeable decrease in spam. I suspect listwashing - but who knows?

Also, Spamcop has had some hiccups recently. Perhaps reporting efficiency was hit hard enough to explain the lower numbers for June?
