I knew the numbers but I just now realized what the numbers really meant. Only 10% or less of e-mails I get daily are legitimate e-mails. 90% are spams and viruses.
I agree with Jon Udell that RSS is not a replacement for e-mails and that e-mail has special powers, but e-mail infrastructure is clearly broken.
As noted by some, SpamBayes tend to throw e-mails written in non-English language into the spam pile. The other day, my little spirit-brother (brother not of birth) in Korea called me to ask why I haven't responded to his e-mail. I told him it was SpamBayes' fault. He said Huh?
Exactly what is going on here? Infinite tolerance? What we waiting for before some drastic actions are taken? 1%? 0.1%?
