A new study suggests that while spam continues to increase, people are less likely to complain about it. Of course, plenty of people are still complaining. The study shows that only 28% of people say spam doesn't bother them, up from 16%. However, that still means that there are 72% of people out there who aren't at all happy about the spam in their inbox. What isn't clear from the article, though, is how many of the people who have come to terms with spam are actually clicking and buying from it -- because that's where it becomes a nuisance for the rest of us. If people actually learned to ignore spam, then spam wouldn't be such a profitable enterprise and would hopefully start to decrease.
