I got about 30-40 spam messages with "Morthelper" in the title... It made me think that Death needed an assistant.

I just checked it again and now there are only 78. Maybe someone sent out a spam storm, Google tracked it down and took care of it? Or maybe they have gremlins in their mail servers?

A little less than 30 today. 3000+ total in the folder, though.

If it wasn't for spam I would get no email at all.

none here either. Gmail is pretty good about it. But then again I don't use it for anything other than friends and family messages.

Yahoo bankrolls my junk intake. I let it collect, but I can't seem to top 7000 messages a month since they dump it automatically after a message is 30 days old.
