Piles of stock spam from Gmail last couple of days


In the last few days, I have started receiving piles of stock spam from Gmail touting the ticker symbol RQST.PK.  I see these spams in my Gmail account, my Frontbridge account and now my Yahoo account.

I still get spam from Hotmail, but it’s confined to my Yahoo account.  I understand that my sampling is under-representative, but it certainly looks like a pattern.

Anyway, to Google, I have one piece of advice: it’s time to implement outbound spam filtering.  I see people on dsl accounts connecting to Gmail and then seeing the message relayed through Gmail.  In other words, looks like Google has the same problem we have.

    No need.  Google doesn’t send spams.  The reason I know that Google doesn’t send spams is that Google told my wife that Google doesn’t send spams.  Google didn’t say who 0wns Google’s mail server since obviously Google doesn’t own it.

    Microsoft should take over both Yahoo _and_ Google.  Peas in a pod.
