Spam-a-cide, part 3

So, remember my spam experiment?  To see how big a number I could get in my spam filter without deleting anything before the sheer scope of it drove me bonkers?  Remember how I was at 94 messages after a day and a half.

Well, it's been a week and I'm up to... 175?  What happened?

This happened.  Apparently 75% (or so) of the world's spam all came from one web host in San Jose, CA, and that host has been shut down.  So, if you were interested in purchasing stock in McColo Corp... don't.

Speaking of stock.  Dude, where's the economy?
