Green Eggs and Spam
Bulk email now accounts for all email traffic on the internet. Yahoo catches and diverts one billion spam messages every day.
I receive 80 pieces of spam a day. Fake phishing emails that look like they’re from eBay or Citibank, ads to buy cheap drugs, online poker, get rich quick schemes, free credit cards. And lots of offers for sex.
I have a spam email box that catches 95% of the spam, but it also catches the occasional legitimate email, too. I still have to look over the email subjects. Looking over 80 in one day is bad enough, but it’s gets wearisome that it’s adding up. Over 400 spam emails this week, over 20,000 in a year. And that’s just spam sent to me.
There’s got to be a better way.
