If you read this book you will know exactly who started this. Of course, they usually call it mass email marketing or some such thing. Still, it’s the same thing. I see a lot of spam in my personal email account and I don’t usually check to see who it’s from. If I see on that is suspicious, then I report it as phishing. Otherwise, I simply empty it without checking it. Too many and I simply am not willing to spend the extra time to browse through it every day. And if there’s a storm, I shut down my laptop, which means it will be a day or so before I get back on line. I’ve seen 500+ emails in my spam from just a couple of days. That is two (2) days! That is way too many for my taste, so let there be none as far as I’m concerned.
I started reading this book and became hooked. It reads like a novel, and let me tell ya, it is absolutely fascinating! I love the style the author adopts. I am so glad I chose this book from O’Reilly’s, because it is truly worth reading. Not only is it fascinating, but it is also informative. I would recommend this book to anyone who wonders, “Where the hell did all this spam come from? And better yet, how did it get started? As well as who are the people responsible???” Personally, I think they should hang ’em out to dry.
