Hurricanes Don't Stop Spammers

from the of-course-not... dept

For years, the refrain has been that many spammers seem to make their home in Florida, so when a few people noticed their spam levels dropping recently, they assumed it must be due to all those hurricanes in Florida. So are spammers shutting down their servers and evacuating? Business Week doesn’t think so, though, a few of the spamming operations they contacted in Florida did admit to taking a few days off. Still, it looks like there was barely a dent in overall spam production, and there are clearly enough spammers elsewhere to pick up the slack.
