Well, that isn't a welcome change. Something happened today -- the levels of spam I got this morning rose severalfold. Doesn't seem to be localized, either -- I'm observing this at home, at work, and on my mailing lists. I'm not sure whether the absolute numbers have risen, or if it's a technology change: a lot of the spam is of a new sort that seems to be slipping through the filters. But based on what I'm seeing in my moderated lists, it certainly *feels* like an absolute rise.
