Will you always be buried underneath a mountain of spam? Is there any light atrepparttar end ofrepparttar 150932 tunnel? Withrepparttar 150933 current flood of spam to your inbox and ever more devious practices onrepparttar 150934 part of spammers you'd be forgiven for thinking that spam is here to stay.

The tide has turned folks. It may not seem like that right now with spam being just as abundant as ever. Spammers are getting desperate though. Their most recent move to use home computers as spam zombies demonstrates this desperation quite clearly. For spammers to want to use low speed cable and DSL connections to send their junk email means one thing -repparttar 150935 email servers they're normally using are being blocked as quickly as they go online.

This is not to say that spam will just disappear. The volume of spam you're receiving hasn't noticeably reduced. Not yet but it will. Education is beginning to take effect. People are deleting spam instead of replying to it. Home users are hiding their PCs behind firewalls, antivirus software and spam filters. Companies are implementing enforcable Internet policies which prevent employees from sending spam, jokes or otherwise, during working hours. Even Microsoft have made a committment to fighting spam. Their recent buyout of Giant Software may see spam filtering as a default feature inrepparttar 150936 next version of Microsoft Windows perhaps?

Let's just imagine for a second what might happen if spam doesn't decrease overrepparttar 150937 next few years.

The geographical hotspots for spammers are Russia, China andrepparttar 150938 Phillipines. Could a government ,say perhapsrepparttar 150939 US Government, take a drastic step. Maybe initiate an electronic first strike onrepparttar 150940 countries which host junk email servers which are used to send out billions of pieces of spam every day? The US already have military Cyber Warfare teams fending off attacks from hackers working for foreign Governments. How hard would it be for them to initiate a cyber assault on spam servers? The US and China actively trade cyber warfare body blows every single day - although this is never discussed onrepparttar 150941 evening news.

I just came across this web site called

After reviewingrepparttar web site, I thought to myself that even a monkey could use this system to easily take orders overrepparttar 150931 Internet without a merchant account.

I'll give you 10 reasons why a monkey could do this.

1. Monkeys don't have money, right? It's absolutely free to set up an account. Once they sell a few bananas they can always upgrade their account and sell more products.

2. Monkeys don't have a lot of patience There is no pre approval to start selling. That includes your sales and thank you page. They can sell physical and/or digital bananas.

3. Monkeys don't know how to advertise. Their product will be displayed in a high-traffic marketplace when a sale is made. Plus, with allrepparttar 150932 other monkeys will be going ape over this web site which means more and more exposure.

4. Monkeys hang out in clans and will have a lot of friends that will want to sell their bananas. They can easily set up a 1, 2, or multi-tier affiliate program and mass pay all there affiliates.

5. Monkeys don't like to wait on their money because they have to buy a lot of bananas to feed their families. No worry, they will get instant payments to their account and no annoying reserves.
