I have a number of email addresses. And unfortunately many of them are on spammers’ lists. This means that it’s common for me to three or four copies of any spam that is going around.
This morning, I checked my spam folder for the first time for a week. There was far more new spam there than I’m used to seeing. Further investigation revealed one email that I’d been sent 750 times and another that I’d been sent 350 times.
I’m really glad that I got the Bayesian filters working last week, as that was the only thing that prevented them from appearing in my inbox.
