Spam! Spam! Spam! Spam!

Is it just me or has the spam volume increased dramatically? As one of those northeastern libtards, I'm adamantly opposed to the death penalty but I'm willing to make an exception for these fscks...

I THINK so, but I don't notice because of my killfiles. Time to ditch googlegroups.
Yesterday I was recommending Supernews for their spam filtering, but I just learned that they were bought out, and that the new owners are not keeping any of the old workers. So purchasing a SuperNews account is not recommended right now.

Supernews is being split. Giganews is taking the commercial side, and a new company (Supernews, Inc) is handling the consumer/personal accounts.
I can't find any reference to staff being let go. Can you provide a cite for that?
Thanks.

It's being discussed in NANAE:

But with no information about staffing, other than suspicious silence from Andrew (Supernews)...
Time will tell...

Supernews, Inc. is a newly formed subsidiary of Giganews. Same buyer for everything.

I can confirm (mostly). Virtually all of the supernews support people have posted in one of the supernews support groups that they are _not_ transferring to the new company. A number have said explicitly that they will not be working for the old owner after the ownership change, either.
there is, I believe, _one_ staffer 'not heard from, at all', and maybe two more that haven't made it clear whether they'll remain with Critical Path after the sale. Based on what _has_ been said, I would expect that none of them will be at Critical Path after the sale, nor will they be at Giganews.
Giganews _is_ acquiring the filter technology that Supernews had -- that does go with the sale. Unclear whether they will (a) continue it at all, (b) let it continue to run, but strictly on auto-pilot, or (c) keep it current/updated like the old Supernews did.
/me is _really_ unhappy about the upcoming changes.

I'd use From: .*\.cn Subject: .*\.cn
I have about 150 subjects I killfile. I use a score system, so I can override killed articles. Words like "cheap", "free" and "wholesale" get killed.

Works on a referral per click, but a fraction of a penny per click. Someone in India, or a third world country could be the difference of having food or not.
If the UPD would be used maybe it could be cleaned up, though it would have to be run through the committee of all committees.

All you need is one out of 10,000 to respond to make a profit.
Sadly, the cost to increase the number of spams from 5 million to 50 million is just pennies. After all - they are not paying for the bandwidth.

They don't care, unless it affects their google ads revenue.

Which is why I kill-file almost everything coming from Google. There are few folks around here who unfortunately use it to post, but I can filter them separately so they show up.
