Us Blamed for 85% of spam

I think the general trend has been that many US spammers (such as the one mentioned below); to set up accounts in Asia and send their spam from there. Reason being, US ISPs don't want them anymore, so make it difficult for them to create spam accounts here in the states. Many of them are US citizens though, using over-seas accounts...

Detroit Free Press tech columnist Mike Wendland reported last week that Alan Ralsky is now experiencing what it likes to be flooded with unwanted correspondence. Mr Ralsky has the capacity to send a billion emails a day and has made a fortune doing it.

Now, he's receiving sacks of paper post, brochures, and catalogues [AOL CDs? Ed] after being signed up for all manner of junk mail - and he ain't happy.

He told the DFP: "They've signed me up for every advertising campaign and mailing list there is. These people are out of their minds. They're harassing me."

Some people have already pointed out the delicious irony in this situation made all the more sweeter because of Mr Ralsky's apparent distress.
