Why is it worth fighting against SPAM ?

I received a post from my friend John Graham-Cumming (www.jgc.org) where he announced that he retires from the antispam industry.

I even asked him if this is a joke.
No, it is not.

John, I am sorry to see you leave, I wish you good luck in your future activity, whatever that might be.

Now, John is right in what he said about the antispam industry.
But, I think that if each of us who are working in the industry manages to kick out 0.001%* of the spam in the world than we really do something.
There are a lot of people in this world who do this each day and I will continue to do the same.

* = this is not random: the big names in the industry say that they detect 99.999% spam with zero false positives :)))
It makes me laugh …
