When I read this story about a month ago, I realized that the Federal Trade Commission had a spam database that people could forward their spam to. The FTC gets about 120,000 e-mails a day, and I decided I should pitch in, too. I started forwarding my spam to firstname.lastname@example.org two weeks ago. Since then I have forwarded 249 pieces of spam I've received at work, which averages out to be more than 19 e-mails a day.
