Getting Used to Spam

The new study (click on the post title for the Washington Post article) says Americans find spam less bothersome than a year ago. I wonder if there are other factors involved besides self-resignation. Most email providers now filter junk email - not perfectly, of course, but pesky ones about mortgages and another person in Nigeria wanting to give me $10 MILLION usually don't land in my Inbox (except at my work email account, which flags spam but doesn't screen it). Also, one would HOPE that more people are able to recognize immediately the same old come-ons and don't bother opening them.
