Is Spam Really a Problem?

I've recently seen articles that say the spam problem is solved and all the alarm is overblown. Wish I could remember where - Business Week, I think.

Is there really a spam problem, or has anti-spam software completely eliminated it, at least for large corporations? Is anyone out there still annoyed by spam -- annoyed enough to do something about it?

If there is no problem, why all the alarm? Just a bunch of busy-body techies complaining? Will the anti-spam software companies go out of business? Since spam is fully blocked, why do the spammers continue to send the stuff out?

What is your experience, at work and at home? Is this still a problem, or has it been solved?

Or maybe it's not a problem any more ... it's just an "issue." What do you think?

Based on the amount of spam coming to two commercial websites I maintain, spam is a problem even though the hosting service provides an anti-spam program. George Elliott
