Lots More Where This Came From

Link to March 31 New York Times post, "Spam Back to 94% of All E-Mail".

Excerpt: Spam, that annoying but ignorable scourge of the Web, has finally recovered from the jolt it received last November, when Internet backbone providers cut off McColo Corporation, a California Web-hosting service that spammers were using to coordinate e-mail attacks.

The average seven-day spam volume during the latter half of March is now at roughly the same levels as October of last year — around 94 percent of all e-mail — according to the antispam company Postini, a division of Google.

"Crazy tasty"?? Thankfully, I can't remember.
