Article: '9 out of 10 e-mails now spam'

CNN.com reports: "Criminal gangs using hijacked computers are behind a surge in unwanted e-mails peddling sex, drugs and stock tips. ... The number of 'spam' messages has tripled since June and now accounts for as many as nine out of 10 e-mails sent worldwide, according to U.S. email security company Postini."

That is a lot of spam. I know I have recently seen my spam folder increase in size by about a third.

My question, are we going to be reading soon that 99 out of 100 emails is spam.
