I've been getting a lot less junk mail (aka "Spam") recently. To the point where I wondered if my email system was broken.
Then I found out the reason. It seems that a large portion of the world's spam was controlled from a server in California. So did the government close it down with a Police raid, lots of flashing lights and SWAT teams?
The two companies who provided Internet access saw what was happening and cut the blighters off.
Nice to see some community action.
