Spam Counter - 2008 November: 852

This month's drop is the the famous McColo effect. It'll be interesting to see how a whole month without McColo looks on 12/12.

Two interesting papers about email-delivered nuisances: spam and phishing. Each offers methodologies which finally give realistic estimates for the return from penis spam and phishing. Both agree there's very little profit in it -- mugs and losers are, after all, a limited resource. Which is nice.
