Part: I The Nefarious Spam Problem > Gorilla Versus Guerrilla

Chapter 1. Gorilla Versus Guerrilla

Over the past few years, spam email has evolved from nuisance to scourge, and now headlines speak of an “antispam arms race” and “millions of dollars lost in the battle with spam.”

The fight against spam has become a full-blown war. The war is being fought between the huge Internet Service Providers (ISPs) on the one hand (the gorillas) and duck-and-run spammers on the other (the guerrillas), leaving most ordinary citizens in the role of a downtrodden populace. Our allies are the gorillas. Our enemies are the guerrillas. But beware that, in war, your friends can morph into enemies when you least expect it.
