Today I went into my gmail spam folder just to check if there were emails being marked as spam that weren’t spam. I found a few, but I was totally disgusted by some of the email subjects in there. I was so disgusted it prompted me to make this post. How many resources are being wasted by spam.
Where are all those predictions from a few years back that company XYZ was going to solve this issue. Wasn’t Microsoft supposed to solve this? This is probably one of the reasons Facebook is doing so well. The good social networks act as good gatekeepers.
I wonder if the wacky alternative solutions are starting to appeal more to people now. Surely everybody has felt the cost of the problem by now. If there was a product that solved this issue 100% correctly, people would pay.
