Something noticed recently

There’s been an uptick in the number of spam comments that try to get through lately. Don’t waste your time. I moderate my comment queue.

What’s the latest estimate, that 90% of email traffic is now spam? It’s past time for international action, and the penalty should be jail time, not just fines. Think about how much bandwidth could be cleared up if we could get rid of all the shit clogging it.

    Neah… harsh punishments wouldn’t stop spam any more than they stop murders. Especially as you’d have to catch spammers first, and that’s like hunting cockroaches with an ice pick. What we need is defense in depth — software coded from the start to be spam-resistant on all levels. And programmers still don’t do that even after all these decades.
