Coincidence?

Item: The earthquake off Taiwan damaged several submarine telecommunications cables, severely disrupting Internet service for much of Asia.

Item: When I checked my G-mail account tonight, I had about 2/3 less spam than I normally get while I'm at work.

Coincidence?

I'm lucky enough to not get much spam, but I'm interested in you observation. I read today that it's going to be a few days before they get the cable fixed. I will be interesting to see if you spam stays down for that time then jumps back up.

If there were a hell, there'd be a special place there reserved for spammers.

Yeah, your observation... We were affected also by the disconnection of the internet. God! I was so worried not having an internet for a minute, much more if its for one day.
