Why do the Spammers even bother? I routinely delete all the Spam without once looking at it.
They bother because out of every hundred people they spam, only 90 of them delete the message without reading it. Out of every hundred who actually read it, they may make one or two sales. That adds up if you're sending thousands or millions of emails, right?
That is why strong anti-spamming incentives are necessary. I am thinking that an appropriate punishment would be for the spammer to be flayed alive, then salt poured onto their skinless, living bodies. They would then be impaled and left in a designated field as a warning to others.
Of course, that would just be for the mid-range spammers.
