Is filing reports worth it?

Recommended Posts

I've been using SpamCop for a year or two. I file dozens of reports a day ... hundreds in every week. I get pretty tired of it but I remain diligent. Bottom line: Is it really worth it to continue or am I just wasting time? I have no evidence to say it has decreased my spam amounts (obviously) but I want to feel I am making a contribution to get this CR*P off the Net. I am not using a paid subscriber account, btw. Comments?

You should ask Miss Betsy to fix the [ q u o t e ] tag in her message, first of the list you refer to...

I've been using spamcop too for as long as I can remember... Submitting my spam as it comes in... loads and loads of it...

It wasn't until I started tweaking my spamassassin rules and adding some of the other RBLs like SORBS did I get spam to die down. Now, I get maybe only 2 a day or so in my inbox... (hint, flagging emails as spam that contain .info & .biz urls REALLY took a bite out of the junk I get)
