Some mysteries about Spam
Referring to the preceding post, here are some mysteries to ponder:
- Why does my son, who has a hotmail account get NO spam? Here are some theories: 1) His email name is a nonsense word. But then so is mine. 2) Somehow Hotmail knows he is underaged and is able to keep his email clean. 3) He has never posted his email on an orderform or a newsgroup.
- What does a regular person do when their email becomes totally spam pollutted? Almost no one has the wherewithal or knowledge to get a new email address, move over to it, notify his correspondents of the change
- What happened in July to cause such a sudden dramatic spike in my spam? Was it just me or did others see something happening around the same time?
