Spam: Nuisance or Menace?

Many people who think of spam tend to think of them as worthless mass of emails that can cause no damage or harm in looking at them. This view, however, is wrong.

Some messages are harmless indeed and could provide a fair chuckle if they were to be looked at. Despite the harmlessness of them, it is better to just not take the risk of any possible malware and avoid opening the message all together.
