Since my earlier post, I decided to see what change there had been in the email addresses used by comment spammers to register. Here are the results:
As before, domains with <1% are still significant; it’s a huge sample. I’ve only excluded domains with <10 actual attempts.
The differences from 18 months ago are interesting. Firstly, mailnesia.com has dropped from 19% to 6% – however this is because the spam system has decided to block it! Hotmail is also slightly less and Gmail and AOL are about the same. The big riser is Yahoo, followed by laposte.net (which had the highest percentage rise of them all). O2 in Poland is still strangely popular.
If you want to know how to extract the statistics for yourself, see my earlier post.
