And the spam is in…

// January 1st, 2008 // Geeky Stuff, General

Last January 1st I stopped deleting my junk email and starting saving them. I wanted to see how much spam email the average web user receives in a year, just as Anne Cohen in Tyneside is collecting her junk mail to show how much is delivered on her street. Of course, I can’t make a sculpture in my garden out of it all but it still proves a point that we’re being inundated by spam email all the time!

Officially, between 01/01/07 00:00 and 31/12/07 23:59, I received a grand total of:

21,801 spam emails

This works out, on average, as one spam e-mail every 24 minutes! Can you believe it?
