Collateral Spammage 2002 Poll Results

Send Article to a Friend

Collateral Spammage 2002 Poll Results - Last week, we asked readers how many spam email messages they receive per week at all their email addresses. Although we never claim TidBITS polls are scientific, the results are unfortunately not surprising. Approximately 31 percent of respondents said they received more than 100 spam messages per week, and about 27 percent reported receiving 20 or fewer spam messages per week - that means about 42 percent of respondents reported getting between 21 and 100 spam messages per week.

Needless to say, the results indicate people are getting more spam than ever. When we conducted a similar poll in May of 2000, only seven percent reported receiving more than 71 spam messages per week, while a whopping 40 percent reported receiving 10 or fewer spam messages a week. Claims that the spam problem on the Internet has increased tenfold in the last couple of years may not be far off base. [GD]
