Holiday Spam Overload

I get a lot of spam. Part of it is because I put my real e-mail address ([email protected]) in all my newsletters. I'll put up with a few hundred spam messages a day just so I can hear directly from Redmond Report readers.

But come this holiday season, I may be eating my words. Security experts believe that spam will increase dramatically this month and next as we celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa and others. There could be as many as 2 billion holiday spam messages every day. Bah humbug!
