AOL spokesman Nicholas Graham attributed the drop largely to spammers moving on after realizing that many of their messages won't get through AOL's anti-spam filters or that they might get sued for trying.
AOL has also confirmed that the number of spam complaints that it has receives has also dropped, and that it has seen declines in spam messages deleted at AOL's gateways as well as those diverted to spam folders by filters under the control of AOL members. So, less spam for AOL users, but will it continue as part of a trend across the whole internet?
