Well, 67.3% of spam mail comes from Nigeria.  And only, like, seven people in the country have computers.  And several of those people are incarcerated royalty trying to get hidden monies out of locked accounts.

So, yeah, I can see how that figure works.

I feel think that we should invade every country that hides persons involved with Weapons of Mass Mailing.

Well, anyone who has a computer technically has a WMM.  So we’re all going to get invaded? wink
