I saw Tim's blog was starting to get peppered with spam too.
I am curious about the economics of spam.
They're pretty simple - sending spam is nearly free, so if one sucker in a million responds, net gain. Plus it sort of allows the gullible to volunteer themselves so the human portion of their sales chain doesn't have to deal with time-wasting alert consumers.
Only 15, I had 47 all from the same idiot yesterday!!
