This article is rediculous:

The large amounts of pre-Christmas spam are something of a tradition, but here too the outbreak was smaller than most of the large outbreaks this year.

What about the Christmas outbreak last year? Was it different?

I get the feeling the author is just spinning the numbers. Who knows, there could be no decline at all unless seasonal trends are fully accounted for.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
