Some methods for countering email spam

spam

The satirical cartoon of today, of Randy Glasbergen introduces us to the problem of SPAM, a true scourge of the Internet. In some recent statistics the proportion of spam on all e-mails sent each day reaches'82%, and it is not difficult to compile statistics on their personal email box. For example, the 21 April I received eight spam emails... and eight email "good". The methane.

The scourge of spam is also due to little control providers "too cheap", or to laws of some countries too "libertine" that do not impose controls providers. But there is a solution to all, indeed there are several. Some time ago I've had to include an email address in the clear between the pages of a site. Write the address unencrypted email is tantamount to saying: "I'm here to receive SPAM", so I have documented and the solutions are many.
