Sorting e-mail friends from foes.

P. Oscar Boykin and Vwani Roychowdhury of the University of California, Los Angeles,think they have a new way to combat spam. It is funny how a day gets hijaked with just one subject. I had lots of discussion today wrt this very same issue(I get close to 70% spam in the 70-75 mails I get everyday:( So it is no wonder that this is the one item on SlashDot that struck me. Here is a link to the article: Sorting e-mail friends from foes: Identifying networks of mutual friends helps filter out spam.. To be completely frank the ideas went a little bouncer for me...but anyways if it helps combat spam I am for it.
