  • I don't think 960 ham messages in three weeks is a common figure. I probably get a fifth of that.

    Going by your numbers, though, you have a spam:ham ratio of 10:1, and I'd say that yes, that's pretty common. It's certainly close to what I'm getting.

    • You must not subscribe to many lists. Schwern's number is only 45 ham messages a day, so you're only getting 9? I probably get 2000 ham messages in 3 weeks, maybe more, most of it mailing list traffic and some automated messages. Of course the vast majority of that gets filtered into folders and deleted with only a glance at the subject line. I doubt that 960 is out of the ordinary for geeks.
      • I lost my perspective here, put as 45mails/day it's not that much. I don't have much email traffic, but I do have a huge blogroll. Newsfeeds have the advantage of being a spam-free medium so far.
