I have to say that spam is starting to really bother me again (after ignoring it for yrs). This is mainly because it is filling up my blackberry. It slows everything down because I’m always downloading another msg. I get so much at night that I often miss msgs coming in the middle. Delete on the blackberry takes about 10 seconds per msg so its no longer even worth trying.
I have to say I’m at this point I would either a) change carriers (using t mobile), b) change devices (blackberry clearly doesn’t stop spam) or c) pay for a third party service that reduced these msgs, OR d) contribute to a non profit that funded people to hunt down and expose spammers.
7 yrs ago I invested in sunil paul’s company, brightmail, who’s original mission was to stop net spam. Sunil has always been way ahead of his time. His original idea was to charge consumers directly. I think we’ve finally reached the tipping point for that business.
Anyone know any great solutions?
