In some recent work I was commissed to do for a company called Surf
Control on privacy and surveillance in the Australian workplace, I found
that 75% of Australian workers receive spam.
Of the types of email they found to be objectionable:
74% - offers for email lists
88% - credit offers
87% - money making offers
90% - chain
17% - jokes
