Fried Spam

I used to regularly empty my spam folder for my Yahoo! address because it counted against my disk space quota. Once Yahoo!Mail stopped counting spam towards my disk space quota, I began a little experiment to see how many spam messages my filter could pick up in a month's time.

Recently I've seen an uptick in my spam. Usually I hover around 1900, but now I'm above 2000 again. And these are only the messages that the filter picks out. On average I get 1-2 per day that the filter lets through.

From time to time, I'll post my unofficial "Spam Barometer" so you can see where the state of my spam is.
