Gates Believes Spam Will Be Eliminated Within Two Years

    November 21, 2004

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates believes spam will be a thing of the past within two years. He did not elaborate on his definition of spam.

“Spam is a major security problem,” Mr Gates told a group in Madrid. “We hope this problem will be under control within two years,”

Gates comments come on the heels of Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer’s remark that he and Bill Gates are the most spammed individuals in the world.

The level of spam has gone down as “new technologies are bringing it under control”, Mr Gates said. “Governments are also increasingly handing out tough sentences to spammers they catch.”
