Spam Count for the Week Ended 11 August 2007

779 spam e-mails and attachments totalling 22.7 MB of mailbox space in one week, a new high. Time to consider a new e-mail address.

Spam, at least the term 'Spam' in the context of the canned "Deviled Luncheon Meat Spread" that is, is a registered trademark of HORMEL FOODS, LLC LTD LIAB CO MINNESOTA 1 HORMEL PLACE AUSTIN MINNESOTA 55912. Hormel and its various subsidiaries in Delaware, Minnesota, and Texas have been working feverishly to trademark Spam for just about any other purpose they can, and they have dozens of registered trademarks to show for their efforts, but when it came to registering the mark with respect to e-mail or junk-mail, they lost. So the term 'Spam' in image above is a protected mark, but the term in the title of this post is not. Always read the tiny print ... you might enjoy it.

It seems that I have been getting much more spam in the last two or three months than I was previously. There are always new tactics to beat filters but maybe the latest new one is just particularly good...
