The cost of spam

About once a week there is a news article up about how much spam costs businesses. They each have a different figure, of course due to a different way of calculating the costs. But the one constant seems they all stand to benefit from the figure being as large and as scary as possible - that way businesses will then authorize more money to be spent to trap spam, and that is good for those involved in stopping spam.

Incidentally, that link we provided claims that "spam costs UK businesses £1.3bn a year".
