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 …
