Junk eMail Wastes My Time -- And Energy

On Friday, Cool Green Science, the conservation blog for the Nature Conservancy, pointed to a piece on Scientific American's 60 Second Science blog that touted a McAfee study which concluded that spam emails cause recipients to waste tons of electricity sorting through the junk. PC Magazine disagrees. The New York Times says spam accounts for 94% of all email, so I'm not sure PC Magazine is living in the same world as I am. All I know is that dealing with spam may not run up my electric bill to any noticeable extent, but it wears me out.
