Do you hate spam? No, not this kind of SPAM, the spam messages you get in your e-mail inbox advertising all kinds of things. Here are some interesting "facts" I read:
The time spent deleting SPAM costs United States businesses $21.6 billion annually.
Some spam filters with strict settings that catch the word "cialis" will not allow many work-related e-mails through because that word is embedded inside the word "specialist".
Why is it called spam? Unsolicited email earned the name "spam" because it resembled a Monty Python skit where a chorus of Vikings drowned out other sounds by singing "spam, spam, spam." Early digital marketing pioneers contend that spam is actually an acronym for Simultaneously Posted Advertising Message.
77 percent of Yahoo! Mail poll respondents said they are more aggravated by weeding through spam than they are by cleaning a dirty toilet.
