New Spam Meme


Link: Spam's Cost To Business Escalates. (Washington Post)

Oh golly, is it that time again? Seems every 2-3 months, the conventional thinking on email spam changes. The most recent meme was, "Spam filtering will save us all." Which, of course, it won't, so I'm pleased to see the clock has run out on that one. The new spam meme appears to be, "Spam has grown to be nearly half of all email."

This was reported recently on MSNBC. The Washington Post article linked at the top of this entry furthers that. The article quotes me, but somewhat surprisingly on the topic of managing spamtraps, for which my contribution is miniscule. I am pleased, however, to see the focus return to the burdensome costs of spam.
