NF . spam 001
I have an alternate e-mail account on one of the free servers one can find in the 'net. For the past three months it was rendered useless by SPAM, which just celebrated it's 10th year birthday a couple of days ago. It was only yesterday when out of nowhere the cyber-Gods started whispering in my ears pointing me to the SPAM filtering option that i am able to breath life into that sufferrin' account once more. SPAM, or unsolicited commercial emails, are getting worse these past few months (if not years). Even Microsoft is mapping out their plans to tackle this problem. Some theories would even tell that the proliferation of worms have something to do with a deeper SPAM-related creeping attacks, that e-mail addresses gathered are being sold for a big amount of money, and SPAM is being used by aliens who have plans of colonizing our solar system. A number of mentally-spammed entities can even make SPAM unstoppable.
Which is bad... we all know there are a lot of valid e-mails that are trashed because of this... not to mention the time, resources and bandwidth that are wasted. Hopefully in the near future, the combination of technological software advancements, laws and 'maturity of humanity' can help solved this problem. Or better yet... use SPAM as a tool along with fireflies in finding alien lifeforms.
