In 1998, I received 857 spams.
In 1999, I received 1,532 spams.
In 2000, I received 3,140 spams.
In 2001, I received 7,386 spams.
Already in 2002, I have received 2,954 spams. If February had been 31 days, I'd likely have gotten as many spams last month as I did in all of 1999.
I have never auto-filtered spam
It is really disgusting.
