Net Pollution

Just wanted to drop some quick stats that I ran across in an article featured on New Scientist about the shocking volume of spam that is perpetuated on the Net.

  • As much as 91% of all email is now spam. – Postini, November 2006
  • Daily spam volume is up by 120% over last 12 months. – Postini, November 2006
  • In October 2006, image spam accounted for 25% of all spam. – IronPort Systems, October 2006
Daily Spam Messages Sent:

Max Speed

If the Pole Position Marketing team had a muse—and it does—it would be Max Speed. We love Max’s occasionally off-color, usually amusing and always pointed “Maxisms.” (Maybe “Maxims” would be a better word.) Max gives voice to some of the things we think but, bound by professional decorum, aren’t permitted to say. At least, not out loud.

    91% of email is spam. This is all getting out of hand. Do some people enjoy sending out spam? Sick punks I say.
