Bad advice

<p>Every so often, the Google news alert that feeds me a steady diet of spam-related news throws up an article written by someone who we might charitably call a 'non-expert'. Sometimes it's a junior journalist who has been told by his editor to go away and write something about spam. Sometimes it's a columnist who wants to share their own frustration or some folksy wisdom on the subject.</p>

<p>In the best cases, there's usually little new or actionable information in the piece. The better junior journalists just summarize a few other articles on the topic, while the columnists let their readers know that spam is making them sooooo mad. In the less good cases, the writers obviously haven't quite understood what they read, so the article is full of misinformation. And in the worst cases of all, the writer may try to offer advice, usually based on their own cursory study of the issue. These are the ones that have me screaming <q>"No!"</q>.</p>
