Default Spam begone ???

Has anyone else noticed a huge reduction in the volume of spam over the last few days? I regularly received 250-300 a day (for years), and recently, it's been down to less than 50. I am not complaining, just curious to know if it's a worldwide thing - I assume that someone somewhere has been shutting down spammers or beefing up filters.

I was also on the receiving end in another way - someone selling fake watches used my email as the return address, so of course I got hundreds of undeliverable message notifications over a few days. Mail server programs are pretty idiotic about their analysis of the true source of messages in general.

P.S. wanna buy a Rolex for $10?
