Have spam levels fallen off lately?



October 20th, 2008

Is it me or have spam levels fallen off lately? I used to get literally tens of spam emails a day but over the past few days the numbers have reduced to a trickle (literally just a few a day).

Note: I've not actually had to handle the spam personally - it all gets rerouted into a junk folder by the excellent iHateSpam application. I scan that junk folder daily for any real emails that might have fallen into the folder by accident but that's a rare occurrence.

I know that an international spam ring was shut down a week or so ago but I didn't expect it to make that much difference.

I suppose the levels will climb again over time.
