Incoming Spam

Here’s what my daily spam count likes like as of about an hour ago:

The time covered goes from Oct 10th to Dec 1st, and, as you can see the spammers were very busy at the end of November!
They are still busy in fact, but I removed several system addresses from our server – email to them is going directly to /dev/null. Spammers must be getting desperate. None of those addresses would have been listed on *any* website yet they received half of my spam. that’s the result of getting hit by Rumpelstilskin attacks so often.
Hey Americans – notice the amount of spam on Thanksgiving? *argh*
