Thoughts and links from the crew of the On Computers Radio Show as we wander the Web.
Since Gail posted this (just a few hours ago) I have found several supporting articles and reports. And, of course, Gail's observation tallies with those of myself and my wife. I currently average about 287 spam messages per day on my regular accounts. And my ratio of spam to real mail is on the bad side of 80 to 1 on those accounts.I also recently opened a Yahoo! mail account for a special purpose. Apparently, Yahoo! sells mailing lists. I say "apparently" because I do not know for certain. But my brand, spanking new account accumulated 65 spams the second day it was up!Email was once the "killer app", giving near instant communication in a free and friendly application. No more. It has now become a burden which forces one to deal with it or run the risk of losing important messages.Jack
