Are Spammers Leaving The Business?
from the so-they-say dept
It appears that the combination of technology solutions and legal crackdowns on spammers may be having some effect on a few of the weaker willed spammers. USA Today is reporting that some spammers are finding other lines of work. I’d be more encouraged if there were a corresponding decrease in the amount of spam – but most studies seem to show that it’s increasing (and my own personal stats support this). One interesting note is that some spammers say they plan on becoming “reformed” spammers who try to come up with better anti-spam solutions. Can you trust a spammer to help stop spam? I’m not so sure.
