W. David Stephenson blogs on homeland security et al. — and under “et al.” asks why is there no attention to detail by spammers?
This is something I wonder about every day while I hold down the delete key to kill off several hundred spams. I can see the argument that some foreign spammers can't do better as their English is too poor (but can't they find something to copy?). I can see the argument that even cheap spam makes a buck, so that there's a quality/effort sweet spot. What I can't understand is why that's the only point or why it so dominates the (mythical) quality-spam solution point.
