Something nasty is brewing on them thar internets today.
In the last hour alone, my personal email account on Gmail has been inundated by nearly seven hundred spam messages. How many of those made it through to my Inbox? Approximately a dozen.
I love you, Google, and I don't care who knows it.
UPDATE (15:30): It looks like whatever this is started around 13:43 Pacific time; I've received more than a thousand spam messages since then. Before that time, it looks like the usual amount of spam traffic.
