Internet users are slowly accepting spam

Posted on Sunday, April 10 2005 @ 22:59:10 CEST by

A new study by Pew Internet and American Life Project revealed that people are slowly accepting spam. For instance 22 percent of the people said they are spending less time on e-mail because of all the spam they receive. In 2004 this was 29 percent and in 2003 it was 25 percent.

The amount of adult e-mail users in the US that trust e-mail less because of spam is back it 53 percent, the same level as in 2003, down from 62 percent in 2004.
"This shows some level of tolerance that people are manifesting," said Deborah Fallows, a senior research fellow at Pew and the study's author. "Maybe it's their getting used to it. Maybe it's like other annoying things in life -- air pollution, traffic -- they are just learning to live with it."
The study also discovered that phising e-mail scams are increasing while pornographic spam is declining.
