The closure of a web hosting firm that is believed to have had spam gangs as clients has led to a drastic reduction in junk mail.

Two US internet service providers have pulled the plug on the firm McColo following an investigation by the Washington Post newspaper.

Anti-spam firm Ironport has seen junk mail levels drop by 70% since McColo was taken offline on 11 November.

Well this action hasn't stopped USA spam getting into my daily email pile. One particular email shot that I get on a regular basis, is for claiming 'my' guaranteed federal grants and entitlements worth thousands of dollars. Boy do I wish that I lived in America :O(
