Developing countries and spam
May 30th, 2005

Developing countries are being overwhelmed with spam according to a new Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development(OECD) report.From the ZDNet News article:”Countries like Malaysia,Nepal and Nigeria lack the bandwidth,technical know-how and financial resources to effectively combat junk e-mail,the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said in the report” and “as a result,web users in those nations endure more outages and less reliable overall service than people in more developed countries”.Also “more spammers are setting up shop in less-developed countries as authorities and Internet service providers in the United States and Europe crack down on them. As ISPs in developing nations harbor more spammers, those providers increasingly land on international “block lists.” That jams up e-mail services for their customers–spammers and regular web users alike”.
