| Is it the quantity or quality of the spam people are concerned about?
| I only got a couple of messages [ ... ]
an extremely quick count of my archived received spam
suggests that since 01-Jan-2005, c.19 spams have leaked
though ILUG. (the count is probably a small number
larger than that due to certain systematic errors.)
that is, c.1 a week — however, the actual distribution
is different; e.g., 2–3 weeks ago, there appears to
have been a rash of c.6 of the fscking things.
my congratulations to Colm et.al. on what is quite
obviously a very effective filtering methodology.
