Spam industry sustained by bad e-mail habits

Here's an interesting article from the BBC News about e-mail spam. Apparently, according to a research study quoted in the article, nearly a third of e-mail users have clicked on links in spam messages - and one in ten users have bought products advertised in spam messages. And this is the primary reason that spam is still around - because it still works. This is very bad news, very bad news indeed.
