In Case You Haven't Been Paying Attention
Thursday, November 21, 2002
For those of you who do not scroll, we've hit a milestone in the fight against spam. As the spam statistics at the bottom of our home page note, we've blocked over 100,000 messages destined to c4.net customers in the past 2 weeks. If memory serves, it took us two months to hit the 100,000 message mark when we first rolled out the service. Though more customers have enabled spam since those early days and we are always working to improve our spam filtering services, this statistic still confirms that spam is on the rise. It's also important to note that this statistic only tracks one way in which we defend against spammers. Therefore, the number is potentially much higher.
