There was a decent discussion about this in my class yesterday. Will Spam ever go away? Or at least become less severe?
My teacher believes that when the government actually starts cracking down on the spammers, but most importantly, the ISP's it will go away.
He believes when the government starts fining the ISP for hosting the spammer, the ISP will in turn find ways to discourage spamming.
Interesting point, I thought. What is your take on it?
