It really is just an endless barrage, isn’t it?
If you’ve been around in the digital age for a few years, you likely own an email address that has accumulated its fair share of spammers. Not just the messages, their senders. The lists you’re on, the amount of people that want to exploit you. When you unsubscribe from one, two others start bombarding you. With an infinite stream of junk.
Maybe you’ve even abandoned a few addresses because they’re under such heavy attack. Congratulations, you’ve been bullied out of what was the closest you had to a true digital identity. I’d consider that a “terrorists win” kind of outcome. I’d also disclaim that we do not need to fight them directly.
We can just focus on making the strategy they use practically impossible.
