McAfee wants spam volunteers

Greater love hath no man than this: that he lay down his inbox for his friends. Security firm McAfee is asking for volunteers to do just that – by opening and clicking on every spam message they receive in a month.

The “Super Spam Me” project will pay the e-martyrs £300 for their sacrifice, and will monitor all the spam they receive. Of course, you will suffer any consequences of your reckless clicking – though McAfee will presumably suggest they can help with that.

What do you think? We’re seriously considering sacrificing one of our old webmail addresses for the greater good – after making sure our PC is locked down, of course.

The project kicks off in January. If you’re interested in taking part, email superspam@redconsultancy.com with your age, sex, occupation, daytime phone number and the average number of hours you spend online. Don’t send them any spam though…
