Onslaught of Commercial Email Continues

In the latest article from Lighthouse on the Web, David Walker writes that the Email system as a whole is under deepening assault from spammers the world over. Walker says, "If you have 20 pieces of spam to throw out every time you log on, you may think twice about using email for important messages of any sort. Every new spam wave trains users that email is a junk medium."

We wonder whether this is really the case. Certainly, we hear complaints from customers occasionally about the amount of spam they receive. Yet, we haven't heard anyone say that they would stop using email. The only people we know who aren't using email are people who have found an excuse to avoid it up to this point.
