Dirty Dozen spam sending nations - find where you finished

Another calendar quarter is behind us, so it is once again time to wade into our spam traps and work out the latest SPAMPIONSHIP standings.

That's where we look at the sources of spam in order to calculate the Dirty Dozen spam sending countries.

If your country is on the list, we're not saying that you're spammers.

But we are saying that you are spam senders.

They should break the US Spam down by state. I haven't looked in a long time but there are just a few people that are responsible for most of it, and they are located in Florida, Michigan, and California, if memory serves me right.

Spam as nearly-free advertising or for cheap or bogus merchandise is sent a lot by US Spammers. Foreign Spammers send a lot higher percentage of phishing and worm Spam, identity theft Spam, and such. Something called "backlink" Spam, where the messages contain links to a customer's web site, are popular among foreign Spammers. Backlink spammers try to post on forums a lot too, with the customer links in their signature block or profile to slip past the defenses of the forum. Our Webmaster could probably write a book about that.
