Thanks for pointing the obvious out even though I was just expressing my opinion.

Then why don't you expressed your feeling toward china and US.I think you commented before reading who is at number 1 and 2...LOLZ :P

On the few sites I've worked on (including here), and from emails, Facebook, etc... a majority of the spam comes from India. Speaking with friends who are mods at various other large forums, a majority of their spam comes from places like India and Indonesia. Don't need to be cheeky about it Mark, but I guess you need to defend your country.

I am not defending anyone man . I can explain the reason about India and china having billions of population so may be large number of people so more chances to spam . but US has millions of people so its not digest to me that why its on top from India and china in spam ... LOLZ

Hmm I really wish I could understand what you were saying though :/ You can't really correlate population sizes with spam though. Having a 1 billion+ population doesn't tell me how many people have access to high level technology capable of sending spam. Usually these spam rings are headed up by just a few people controlling hundreds of slave computers they've infected with viruses. You can't really justify the % with population size. I should add that I don't even live in the US or China, so it's not that I'm trying to defend them either.
