The good news is that the percentage of email that is spam dropped last year. The bad news? It's now 97.3%. What is it?
"Pharmacy and other product ads make up the lion's share of spam, accounting for 72.2 percent of all spam sent. Only 10 percent of the total spam share now involves sexually-oriented pharmaceuticals; that's a huge decline from previous studies, as apparently Viagra and Cialis are no longer that hard to come by.
Image-only spam, dating come-ons, financial spam, and fraudulent diplomas round out the remainder of the most common spam subjects."
It sure seems to me that in an era where our resources are limited, particularly those of money and time, this sort of tomfoolery should be eliminated. How about a national no-spam and certainly no-unsolicited-bulk-mailing lists like exist for telemarketers?
