Not complaining but where's all the spam??

My ISP here in New Zealand has a built in spam filter, so very little reaches my inbox. Although its NZTelecom, its actually Yahoo -based, so you can check on their server in case any deleted spam is actually genuine mail.For the past few days the deleted (spam)items have numbered from zero to three per day - usually its up in the fifties to seventies. Is this a worldwide phenomenon? as I understand spam by its very nature spreads globally. If so , any theories as to why?

Yes it is a bit like the lull before the storm, perhaps there's a spam tsunami coming! Hold on to your hat, batton down the hatches, board up the windows. Or just turn it all off and walk away for a few weeks...no chance

Afraid I did'nt misunderstand I dont get anything like that blocked.If I did I would be concerned as to how they got the address

eedcam Hi your lucky then I guess you must either be a newbie or don't do much surfing?

Must say that my spam has virtually stopped as well(have probably put the kiss of death on that statement just by posting it!)
Never had any spam through my current ISP but still used to get about 5-a-day with my old Freeserve addy but over the past few weeks that has dropped to virtually nil.

I had a lot of junk Monday morning when I tuned my computer on, most of it in French.
