There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

Spam Check II

I know I still can’t top Ryan with this but I thought I’d post it anyway: how many spams are you receiving each day?

Discounting my Gmail account, which is a dumping ground for websites I don’t trust, I get 120-150 per day. There was a definite uptick about 3 or 4 months ago; things suddenly exploded and I was getting more.

Just silly.

I forward all my mail accounts to Gmail, then forward my Gmail inbox back to a double secret IMAP account. Gmail has 12322 spams right now, which should represent the last 30 days, so that is about 410 spams per day. If we add the spam that actually makes it through to the inbox, I guess that would increase it to about 415 per day.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
