The tiny British overseas territory of the Pitcairn Islands in the Pacific Ocean relays the most spam per person in the world.
But with a population of only about 50, it shouldn't be too difficult to trace the source of the problem.
Pitcairn, whose inhabitants are the descendants of the Bounty mutineers, led by Fletcher Christian, heads a top 10 list of rogue spam-relaying nations when spam is measured per capita.

The list, from web security firm Sophos, shows that the top spam nations by volume - the US, Russia and China - are eclipsed when populations are taken into account.
The top 10 spam-relaying nations (per capita) are:
1. Pitcairn Islands
5. Faroe Islands
8. Falkland Islands
When the top three spam-relaying countries are considered in these terms, the US is is 64th position, Russia 45th, and China 132nd. The UK ranks 50th.
So to the sweet potatoes, bananas, oranges and coconuts exported from Pitcairn, we can now add spam.
