from the no-surprise-there dept

I doubt this is all that surprising, but a new report suggests that anti-spam companies will bring in noticeably more revenue than the spammers themselves. Of course, creating anti-spam products actually takes some work, whereas spam is the job of lazy people who have no longterm vision, but just want money as quickly and as easily as possible. Still, when you look at the amount of money spent on both sides, it's fairly stunning just how much money moves due to spam.
