Spam is certainly the scourge of the Internet for most users. According to BBC News, the amount of spam has plummeted since ISPs in the US pulled the plug on one specific host believed to be the hot spot for a massive group of spammers.

The closed firm was called McColo and after an investigation by the Washington Post found strong ties to spammers, the plug was pulled on the McColo site.

According to anti-spam company Ironport since McColo was closed on November 11th, spam levels it is tracking have dropped by a massive 70%. Score one for Internet users everywhere!
