While looking for some stat on the actual efficiency of spam I found the
following site: http://www.heels.com/publications.html
Article 27 deals with spam specifically. For this individual 1 in 100
interesting and only because he liked polish sausage.
There are a number of other articles there that may be of general interest.
That said, are there any reasonable stats on how effective spam really is? No
one I know responds to the damn stuff but someone must be or it would have
died out by now. [Perhaps given human nature that last assumption is wrong ;)
