Is Spam decreasing

  Habsish 18:56 28 Jul 2009

I have seen a fall in the amount of Spam I receive. Down from 100+ a day to something about 30 a day.

Is it just me or is anyone else seeing a similar occurence?

Unfortunately Nigerian spammers used my e-mail address as the return address for undelivered mail and I received over 30,000, in ten days, earlier this month. How many were they sending out to get this number undelivered?
My server could do nothing about it and I had eventually to close that e-mail address.
After the first day when I received several hundred I only accessed the address on the web to try and pick out the few that were for me.
A real pain but I opened an anoymous account and did some spammer baiting for a while until he twigged I was not for real.Made me feel a bit better about the inconvenience.
