A Spammer Makes My Case

I rant regularly about how the spam economy (the "spamonomy") keeps spammers going as long as spam recipients keep contributing to it—knowingly and un-. In a Washington Post/PC World spam article interview, an anonymous spammer confirms my belief:

Q:Will spam ever go away?

A:Spam will never go away. If nobody was really interested in spam and people never bought anything that was advertised to them, spam would go away. That's simply not the case.

There you have it from the horse's, um, mouth. It'll probably be my dying breath "rosebud" sentiment: ZERO RESPONSE.
