Ok, so apparently the spam engines that people are running finally got tipped off that there’s a whole growing community of <someone>@mac.com addresses out there. Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself when I receive bombardments for all of the latest and greatest male performance enhancers, rolex watches, and most recently, “The PayPal Game” solicitation.
But at least that one was sort of interesting: it’s a pyramid scheme where you send money to the person on the top of the list, take their name off, add your name to the bottom, and forward it on. Then eventually — after everyone plays along nicely — you receive a bunch of cash. But guess what? I got ripped out of a pack or two of baseball cards as a kid, and it’s not going to happen again. So stop it.
So anyhow, this brings up a neat opportunity for the .Mac team: why not develop or at least make use of some server side spam filtering or, better yet, provide .Mac users with a Mail plugin that performs better spam filtering than the one that comes standard?
Anyone else with a .Mac address been getting hit lately? And if so, would extra spam killing stuff from the .Mac team make you more inclined to renew?
