German spam makes me mad.

For the past two days I have mostly spent my time manually deleting German spam. That pissed me off a little - but I just figured someone had trawled the Hotline for email addresses and it would calm down in a fairly short time.

But no. I'm still having to manually delete emails from my primary email account. Gmail doesn't seem to be handling the sudden influx well, and earlier this morning I discovered that it's all down to a new Sober worm variant. Which means this could go on for at least a week...or however long it will take for people to clean up and protect their machines. Great. Hopefully Gmail's spam filters will adjust soon.
