I like the sentence "He said China's Internet users are increasingly finding that the majority of their e-mails are no longer personal -- an average of 8.9 e-mails out of the 16 they receive each week are spam."

16 emails a week? As I have said before, the potential for growth is tremendous in China -- that a three-fold increase in users by 2006-7 will actually involve (at least!) a 10-fold increase in activity by 2006-7.

Our family gets, on average, 10 emails and 15 spammails a day. The spam percent passed the 50% mark about three months ago in May. And I have read that around that time is when spam became over 50% of total internet email traffic.

Good luck to the Chinese on this. They may not have much better luck than we do. Of course, they don't have to be as careful about first amendment rights...
