The sad and depressing reason you keep getting spam

January 8, 2019

 

 

Here's a sad thought.

 

You keep getting spam. All kinds of spam.

 

Whether it's for blue pills, offers from Nigerian princes or marriage proposals, our inboxes are inundated with endless spam.

 

Ever wonder why?

 

It's not because spammers are desperate.

 

No. People keep sending spam because it works.

 

Yup. There are people out there who really respond to those weird messages, offering cure-alls at deeply discounted prices.

 

Spam works. So spam writers keep writing it.

 

So, the best way to deal with the spam problem is to educate people on why they should ignore it.

 

Then again, there is a non-zero number of people who believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows.

 

But ultimately, solving the problem starts with us not falling for spam scams.
