Spam seems to be everywhere. I thought about all the spam I’ve received since I started blogging. If I’ve charged for a dollar a spam, I’ll be a rich man by now. My current spam count is at 323,460.
My Akismet stats indicate that 99% of all my comments are of the spam variety. It’s a well-known fact that 95% of email is spam. Spam takes up a tremendous amount of hardware resources from CPU, memory and storage.
To fight back for resources lost, all bloggers should start charging spammers for every spam sent. Spam comments will be allowed to stand if a spammer has paid for them. All unpaid spam are deleted.
The question is, will there be enough spammers willing to pay for premium spam?
