DCSmooth Posted May 31, 2005 Share Posted May 31, 2005 As a geographer, I was absolutely intrigued when I found postini's map of spam spewing sources around the world, which is also linked near the bottom of the forum FAQ: http://postini.com/stats/map_window_dha.html Many interesting questions arise from viewing this map, including: * Why is France such a hot spot? * Why Alberta and not the rest of Canada? * Why does the red band from New Jersey to North Carolina seem to skip Maryland's borders completely? Is there some craziness in the politics of some areas that makes them extremely favorable havens for spammers? And on the other foot, in cases such as the seemingly spewless State of Maryland, does the map reflect some sort of statewide-spam legislation that is actually working? (Obviously, the map is only as accurate as Postini's data, so I realize that quirky regions might reflect wholes in their data rather than actual spam trends, but still the areas that stand out on this map are interesting.) I'd be interested in hearing anyone's theories or comments. Thanks (and yes I know I'm a map geek) Dan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
