  • Yes, because spammers are always one step ahead of IT experts.

    Technically, spammers should be considered IT experts, as well, as they always seem to be one step ahead, with their spam and viruses. I think that spammers will always find a new way to do what they do, and get the results they desire. Why they do what they do varies. IT experts will always be playing catch up.

  • Like any arms race, the process will constantly go back and forth.

    The spam battle, much like viruses and hacking, is a back and forth conflict. One side finds a hole or new method, the other side fixes or blocks it, and the process repeats. As long as both sides have a goal to accomplish, both sides will continue trying to defeat the other side. No matter how secure the IT experts feel, the nature of computer systems will always allow for some form of loophole or exploit.

  • In IT wars, the bad guy is most likely to win, because technology moves too fast.

    When it comes to Internet criminals, it is unfortunate that they are always at least one step ahead of the good guys. Technology moves so fast these days, and it is impossible to keep up. It is the criminals that push the limits of possibility in this case. And, those fighting these new-age crime really can do nothing more than react.

  • Yes, because spammers are too crafty when it comes to overcoming barriers.

    As technology becomes more advanced, so do the people who are able to overcome barriers, when it comes to junk e-mail. For every foot that we move forward, a spammer is able to jump forward 2 feet. If IT experts put up even more blockages, there will not be any e-mails allowed through the servers at all.

  • Spammers will always be able to win the war with IT experts by creating newer and more complicated techniques for delivering junk e-mails, because IT has always been one step behind.

    IT experts are always one step behind spammers in the battle to keep spam out of your inbox. In other words, the IT guys are on the defensive. As long as spammers continue to find ways to keep the spam moving, IT experts will have their hands full. The only way around this is for the IT crowd to offensively stop spam, without stopping legitimate e-mails, which is a highly unlikely possibility.

  • Spammers will always fins a way to defeat the IT experts, because there will always be people looking into how to get past the filters.

    It is sad to think of it, but there will always be spammers, no matter what IT experts do to try to prevent it. It is just one of those things. There will always be people who are drawn to doing bad stuff like this. To them, it just becomes a challenge to try to break something that was put into place.

  • There will always be spammers.

    No matter how hard IT companies try to thwart spammers, they are always going to find a better way to get around the system. The Internet is a black hole of options, and spammers will always loop their junk mail in there somehow. Whether it be by impersonation or direct hit, the spam will end up in our boxes no matter how much we try and block it.

  • Yes, I believe the spammers will always find a way to send out their junk mail, because it is to their advantage to do so.

    Spammers seem to always stay a step ahead of the IT experts. They have a purpose and they are dedicated to it. I am afraid that we will forever be aggravated with spam emails that we have to delete. It is obvious that the spammers gain something by doing this, whether it be gaining information from people, or tricking them into spending money on something that they do not understand.

  • Where there is a will, there is a way.

    Spammer will ALWAYS try to outsmart the IT experts. The only job spammers have is to find a way to send these emails. I don't think an IT expert can stop them. Spammers know that all they need is about 1% of emails to go through and they can make money. That won't stop them from trying to go around the system. As the saying goes, there is always someone out there building a bigger mousetrap.

  • Yes, people will never stop at trying to advertise their products and get money off you.

    Spam has been around for a while as well as spyware and viruses. The malicious people who create these things will not stop at any cost. The more difficult it gets, the more of a challenge it is for them, which I'm pretty sure they enjoy. The point of it all is to get money, and as much of it as possible.

  • Topography

    Absolutely not. Spam filters do a great job today a is. However, if bettter topography algorythims were used and interfaced with Google+, Facebook and other social sites, so that node distances, predictive statistics and historical routing were employed, spam would be emliminated. This would require some effort on an individuals part, but would eliminate spam in a very short time. Having opt-in on email would also eliminate spam. You are welcome for the answer :)
