Experts predict spam for Christmas – spend time with family instead, please

Experts are predicting a spam flood for Christmas, and I think “experts” are just experiencing the holiday blues and looking for some attention.

After the fall flood, most would agree than things have slowed considerably. I for one haven’t received any spam in days, and the rate has been nominal since the middle of November. Christmas is only days away.

Even spammers need a break, and I think they are taking it right now. Any thoughts?

UPDATE: An email security vendor reported a 35% jump in spam during November. Sorry I missed it.

Oh I definitely had a spam invasion on Xmas … some @#$@% spammer has used my email address (not gmail but a PAID one) as his reply-to, so that means war…
