In case you didn't notice the increase lately, we've had our heaviest month in over a year with
MessageLabs reporting that the poor folks in Hong Kong are seeing 89 percent of all email as spam and in the U.S. it was a modest 74 percent.
There must be a lot of bandwidth being wasted and internet users paying for at least 3 spammers emails for everyone of their own, along with all that anti-spam software and the time wasted dealing with spam.
It appears that the people running the place certainly don't know how to deal with it (there is someone running the internet isn't there?). Surely legitimate users spending yet more money on spam filters isn't the ideal solution.
One good? bit of news - phishing was down 0.1%.
I have some ideas of my own about how to fix it, but what do you think we can do to stop it?
