This is a bit off my beat, but newsworthy enough to report, IMHO.
It seems that in the last several days, an inordinate ratio of spam seems to be seeping thru to my Gmail Inbox. Most are still being caught in Google's spam filter, but as a percentage, more of this crap seems to be getting thru.
I show this in the screencap at the top of this post. All Gmail spam in my Inbox is checked off. Business opportunites, marketing requests, and woo-hoo, lottery winnings!!
Readers, how many of you have noticed what I have? Have you been receiving more spam in your Gmail inbox?
Are the spammers cracking one of Google's vaunted Gmail algos? I wonder if Google knows about this?
It's an arms race, for sure. But are the spam-writer-employing guys in the Laikas who, right now, are holding a long tall glass of vodka as they take two babes back to their dacha on top right now?
