I’d love to see some way to “reset” the spam filtering in Gmail for situations like this. Checking Google’s Gmail Help section on removing spam tells me that “the more spam you mark, the better our system will get at weeding out those annoying messages.” Ironically, I’m finding lately that the exact opposite is happening: I’m marking more and more messages as spam, but getting even more (or at least as many) in return. Back in late 2007, Google reported fairly impressive spam-filtering statistics. I may look around to see if that data has been updated lately.
It’s getting so bad that it’s taking at least 15 to 30 minutes of my day to mark items as spam in the two accounts. That’s simply too much effort. Is it just me and a few other folks on Twitter, or have you noticed this of late as well? I’m still thinking that, like sending a piece of snail-mail, maybe we should be charged a minimal micro-payment for every e-mail we send. Oy!
