Experts Don't Believe Bill Gates Can Stop Spam

from the well,-duh dept

Earlier this year, Bill Gates made a splash by announcing that he was spending much of his time trying to come up with ways to fight spam. Unfortunately, most of the methods he listed have been tried before without much luck. Also, many people pointed out that some of the reason spam is such a problem is because of Microsoft security problems (which were not among the things Gates was looking to fix). Well, now the experts have weighed in and they pretty much agree with everyone else: Bill Gates won’t be able to stop spam. In fact, many seem to think it’s fairly amusing that he thinks he can.
