Where did you say you read this?
Numerous bloggers picked up on this item (in the specific wording I've quoted).
A few more than fifty pages, some from personal blogs, some from more formal newspapers,
seem to report it. All of them (or at least all of them that I checked) report
that it's from the Yahoo Canada annual internet review.
I spent quite a bit of time trying to find that review, and the report on spam.
The main page of Yahoo Canada has a link to
Year in Review 2004,
but I couldn't find the report on spam within that link. Perhaps in a case such
as this it's enough to simply conclude that if so many people quote it it must
actually be there, but I'd feel quite a bit more comfortable reporting it if I
could get to the first source.
