Spam Increasing But Generating Less Noise

As spam becomes more and more prevalent, Americans are starting to accept them as a fact of life and just move on, according to a survey conducted by the Pew Internet and American Life Project:

Thirty-seven percent of U.S. e-mail users say they are getting more junk in their personal e-mail accounts, and 29 percent see an increase in their work accounts. About half say they have not noticed a change, the Pew Internet and American Life Project said in its study, released Wednesday.

Meanwhile, 28 percent of Internet users now say that spam is not a problem at all, up from 16 percent in June 2003.
