I've been thinking a lot about spam this week. I've decided to hit the unsubscribe link on every piece of spam I get in order to see if I end up getting more or less messages per day over the next four weeks. I have a feeling most of the unsubscribe scripts just place your email on a list to get "anti-spam" technology and such, but it's fun to see what happens. I've realized how pervasive the unsubscribe link is- there is usually one even on porn spam. I only get one or two pieces of real spam everyday- the totally unsolicited kind, with no unsubscribe option. Spam blocking tech from Big Blue: Wired News: New Plan for Spammers: Charge 'Em
