Spam insights

I’m always complaining about spam, having changed email addresses many times to try to escape, but I’ve never really understood the economics of spam all that well. Today I saw this great post explaining a little bit about why I get nonsensical emails seemingly selling nothing all the time: they’re poisoning the spam filters!

Personally, I think spammers should be taken out to a field and done away with old-west style, but at least now I understand a little bit more about how they operate. Seriously, read the post, it will open your eyes.
