Daily Reading: Bell is number one!

Of course, if you're going to be first in something, malicious activity might not be what to aim for.

In their defense, they are also the biggest internet supplier, so the figures are unsurprising. I don't even know that it's a matter of being a more obvious target in this case, but just that spam hits everyone everywhere. And bigger tubes carry more stuff, including spam.

Here's normally where one gloats and chortles about owning a mac, but I'm not going to say nothing, because spam is included in this list, and spam cross-platform. I run all my email through gmail, which weeds out about 95% of the spam, and Mail's spam filter usually catches most of the rest.
