Junk E-mail Responsible for 90% of Traffic

Item: Junk emails are still clogging up Inboxes, with spam accounting for 89.73 per cent of all email traffic, new figures claim.

Quoth: “It seems hard to believe the amount of people that do respond to spam messages.”

DFO: You mean, people really respond to those bogus pleas from Nigeria?

Question: Where does e-mail spam rate on your list of pet peeves?
