The Spammers' Compendium

The Spammers' Compendium was started by John Graham-Cumming in January 2003 to keep track of the methods used by spammers. Notes of a talk about The Spammers' Compendium, given at the MIT Spam Conference in 2003, can be found here. Since 2008 The Spammers' Compendium has been hosted on the VB website.
