Yesterday I learned about the spam reporting system that is being run by the National Fraud Authority . It is a very simple service, forwarded span is collated for analysis, but that will enable long overdue action against those who generate and/or forward the most.
I have just forwarded my first item.
I also plan to forward the spam postings to this blog (so be warned). At first I was flattered that so many lovely people were posting nice things about my entries – albeit most appeared to have been generated automatically and came in spurts.
More seriously. Please make the time to forward the spam you receive. I live in hopes that if the service gets overloaded those lovely people in the West Country will earn their keep and provide the necessary technical back-up and “aid to the civil power”.
