The Economics of Spam

This page has some interesting numbers that explains why spam is so popular. Course, if you do it you're going to hell, but that's besides the point... I mean, money is money right? *sigh* Personally my objection to spam is more along the lines that any tom dick and harry can do it from their basement. At least sometimes spam is "legitimate" marketing from real companies, that actually respect the remove@ rules. Of course, no one ever responds to remove@ anymore, because the spammers are using those addresses to collect legit emails. Bah, shoot them all. </rant>
