Comment Re:Spam Translation - Read the little font (Score 1) 373

I've heard that reasoning a few times here on slashdot, but I have to disagree with the statement that if people didn't buy spammed products there wouldn't be any spam. Sending out mass amounts of email is extremely cheap, and a lot of new spammers join in every day.

While the volume would certainly be less if spam didn't make money, there will always be someone willing to spend 50 or 100 bucks to give it a try, just like there are always people signing up for the latest get-rich-quick schemes advertised on TV.
