Bill Gates is popular...

I'm afraid I am in full 'serves you right' mode. Apparently, Bill gates gets in excess of 4 million (4,000,000) email messages per day, most of which are 'spam'. My compnay needs to spend over £10,000 per year on filtering spam. I have to justify this expenditure by outlining how much of my bandwidth and server-time would be used-up filtering this ourselves, or how many man-days would be used by staff erasing their own.

Humour me here people, how many of you have actually bought anything as a result of un-solicited emails? Not many I'll bet, and if this is the case, who is actually earning money from 'spam'? Thats right, the companies offering spamming services.
