Did you get spam today? Strange, according to Microsoft, the spam problem should have ended yesterday. But theat isn’t the first time Bill Gates and his company has underestimated the spam problem. The Register has a nice piece on this subject today, titled ”Hey Bill, why am I still getting spam?”:
”Two years ago today Bill Gates predicted that spam email would be eradicated as a problem within 24 months. The Microsoft chairman predicted the death of spam in a speech at the World Economic Forum on 24 January 2004.”
In fact, most of the spam we are receiving today is originated on worm infested Microsoft systems.
