Spam Lite?

Post by Stephen Hart » Fri Oct 23, 2015 3:45 pm

I've experienced a dramatic reduction in spam in the last week or so. I was getting 40 or 50 spams a day, many disguised as ads for legitimate-seeming products* but some obvious ones.

Recently that's fallen to 1/10 as many per day.

* Some of the spams that looked, superficially, like ads for real products used real product names. Others used something that a naive user might think he or she had seen advertised. One seemed to be a favorite target for similar-seeming faux products: the Tile tag.

Well, the respite was short-lived. I'm back up into double or triple digits of spams per day, all of the faux advertisement type.
