Spam Report

I just came across an interesting study done by a group called The Center for Democracy and Technology. (CDT claims it gets financial support from a wide variety of sources, including both Microsoft and AOL!)

Their report, titled "Why am I Getting all this Spam?", is based on a six-month experiment involving email honeypots - bogus email addresses established to see how much spam various kinds of behavior would attract.

Interesting.
