Spam vs Email ratio still getting worse

A new report has some disappointing results for us:

E-mail systems are overloaded or melting down trying to keep up with all the spam,” said Dan Druker, a vice president at Postini.
His company has detected 7 billion spam e-mails worldwide in November compared to 2.5 billion in June. Spam in Britain has risen by 50 percent in the last two months alone, according to Internet security company SurfControl.

He goes on to claim that the United States, China and Poland are the biggest sources of spam. Hmm, I guess the Great Firewall of China is not as good at keeping spam in than its real-world counterpart was at keeping the Mongolian hordes out.
