Yes, I got many spam about viaaagra* or "my dad was minister in an African country...". Why this is not blocked? why?
I don't want to create filters [if mail contains "viaaagra" then delete it], it's not my job...

* with 3 "a" it's better? :-P

Spam everywhere, and some email that is not spam also list on the spam label. So:
Use 2 email. One for business and another for no business. Keep business private.
That will be OK.

I am getting more as well. The question is whether there had been a substantial increase since they released it from needing an invite to join.

Here's my rough stats: 1600 spams on average every 30 days and in the last 3 months I only had about 10 end up in my inbox. Over the last few months mine seemed to actually become more accurate. Around October of last year I was getting about 1200 spams every 30 days and about 10 a month ended up in my inbox.

I'm not getting more than usual, though interestingly enough for some time I received a lot of spam that always mentioned "Darell". Like, "Darell, buy more v1agra" etc. As if the spammer figured my name is Darell...
