If you feel like your inbox is suddenly overrun with spam again, you are right.

Not long ago, there seemed hope that spam had passed its prime. Just last December, the Federal Trade Commission published an optimistic state-of-spam report, citing research indicating spam had leveled off or even dropped during the previous year.

Instead, it now appears spammers had simply gone back to the drawing board. There's more spam now than every before.

I have noticed the same thing. I get spam like crazy that my filters don't seem to be catching like they used to. Its very annoying and actually makes me dread checking my email for all the crap I have to wade through. And seriously, has anyone ever even read spam, much less fell for the adds for male enhancement or whatever? Or is it just something people do to be annoying; not expecting anyone to fall for it?

Most of us don't fall for the spambots, lefty, but there are enough who do to keep them coming back. One of the worst things one can do is click on a link some of these spammers provide. That's one of the reasons I delete the spambots that register here. Their profiles show a "website" that far too many gullible people will click just out of curiosity. TVNL is not going to provide FREE advertising for these bozos. If they want to advertise their product or for profit site, let them buy space on the main page.
