All quiet on the spammer front
Published: Wednesday 2004-01-21.
I have received a several pieces of e-mail lately about people not listed on my page of Swedish spammers. I only publish spam mail I have received myself on that page, I do not list submissions. The question is thus, why have I not seen the letters? Is it that the spammers have found their way here and figured out that it would be foolish to send their messages to me? Or is that ascribing too much intelligence to the blockheads? No matter what it is nice not having received things like this:

If it is a fact that the spammers have washed my addresses off their lists due to my web site, I have to say that that is very nice, then it at least has served one of its purposes – to decrease the amount of junk that I receive. The problem is of course that it has not served its main purpose: to decrease the amount of junk that is sent, no matter the recipient.
