elind Posted June 2, 2006 Share Posted June 2, 2006 Recently I have received several bursts of hundreds of the same spam message. Last time this happened it continued for a few days then petered out. Typically I get about 50 or so spams per day (only one or two that don't get caught, but they come to a little used unfiltered email). Today I received 290 titled "Check it out!!!!!!!!" all at once. Looking at spamcop reports they came from all over the planet, although the usual sources were prominent. I can't figure out the logic in these. Why use up all those resources on hundreds of the same message to the targets? Surely the idiots who respond will do for one or two. Hundreds will piss off baboons even. Any explanations?
