    Have to say I haven't seen all that much spam e-mail in my inbox recently.

    Recession has forced spammers to tone down their operations.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Bull.
    The amount of spam I get is still rising. Worse, the amount of new contact requests from spammers I get is rising as well.

    Banking sector employs jobless spammers for their industriousness, entrepreneurial spirit and experience in scamming the world. Check your inbox for new financial products.

    spam is nothing worth mentioning, viruses are at the level where i could safely guide HMS Vitualbox through the sea of the Internets indefinitely. so so so much better than it was 5 years ago.

    someone man up and make a super worm virus trojan three meat treat, jobs are riding on this kind of thing!

    My most spammed mail box went from from several hundreds/over a thousand per however long Gmail keep them before ridding of them to only 30-ish currently. It's actually the account I am most cautious with in giving it out, but I guess than being a name makes it easy target.
