SPAM, Phishing, Virus-related Blogs

To keep up with new undesired email threats and to stay up-to-date with anti-spam, anti-phishing and anti-spam advancements it is a good idea to routinely read blogs that talk about these topics. Here are the blogs that I find useful:

Stories in a world of Spam (http://spameulogy.blogspot.com/)
"In the technology-based world we live in today, there is no possibility of a life without spam. Spam is probably the most advanced form of natural selection in a world plagued by greedy and self-centred people that fall for the lamest scams. In many ways, spam is the nearest place to heaven, since it mirrors the world that we want to live in. In the world of spam things are quite different: prices are low; women are open about their sexuality; men are impotent and have small penises; investment opportunities are safe and offer high returns; rolexes are highly desirable items; university degrees are easy; banks are caring; and, prescription drugs are the solution to almost everything. I believe spam is a fascinating hilariously funny world worth exploring!." (have a break and read a funny SPAM blog!)
