rconner Posted August 21, 2008 Share Posted August 21, 2008 I found this while researching updates to my site: http://www.marshal.com/pages/newsitem.asp?article=748 They claim that in a web poll they conducted, 29% of about 600 respondents claimed that they'd bought something from a spammer. Being that it is a self-selected survey with a rather limited sample, I'm not as willing to extrapolate these numbers as the authors are, but they do make some good points about the fact that spam offers goods that some people dearly want but can't (or won't) get anywhere else. Also, you have to consider that these folks are selling anti-spam services, so sensational headlines like these tend to help their sales pitches. -- rick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
