Spamming has become more dynamic over the years. The level of complexity is what makes it even harder not only for the anti-spam programs but our very own laws to cope. How do you exactly deal with mass mail from legitimate companies? Well, they could just say sue them and send them to jail. But then, we’re not just talking about a few here. Instead, we have hundreds of thousands of them, even large companies. That, I think, is a major reason why the United States is way up there.

The article is actually right. Population has a large influence in spam. But there’s also another component which is the ability to buy and frequency of Internet use. Countries such as India, China, and U.S. have a growing number of people buying stuff online, so definitely they are the best people to spam. The others I think have very lenient anti-spamming laws.

Agree with you, Bernie. Spamming has become somewhat like an art. It’s not just something that someone does during his spare time anymore; it has reached different levels. Its complexity may also be due to the fact that spammers are always trying out something new. So every time authorities come up with an anti-spam program, a new form of spam comes out and wreaks havoc online. So the cycle continues and we try to find new ways to fight spam again. Spam is constantly changing and developing, so much so that even countries like Germany and Russia are in the list.

As a writer, I think I can see a great future in spamming. As what Mars mentioned, it’s becoming more of an art; scammers and spammers have become craftier by the day. The “job” would surely be a fresh challenge to both my intellect and creativity. But then again, I bet you can sense that I’m just being sarcastic here. I don’t support anything that’s unethical and illegal.
