Paying for Spam

How much is my information worth?

It appears everything has a price, even unwanted email.

Ken Magill highlights an interesting twist in the spam world. A new company, Boxbe, allows users to set a financial threshold at which mail from unapproved senders will be allowed through a challenge-response gateway.

Might be interesting to see what $0.01, $0.10 and $1.00 allows through.
