David Akin :: Study: Spam is made in America

As mentioned by David Akin here, Sophos claims:

"Most of the world's spam comes the U.S., ZDNet UK reports. The U.S. is number one with nearly 57 per cent of all spam originating there, says Sophos, a U.K. anti-virus company. Canada is number two, though, when it comes to spam country of origin. Mind you, Canada has long way to go before it is as notorious as the U.S. for spam. The report says Canadian spammers account for less than 7 per cent of the world's unwanted unsolicited mail. "

In my findings running I find this extremely hard to believe. I'd be interested to know what methods they used to come up with these results. I see a massive number of spam and spam attempts coming from Taiwan/Asia and next to nothing from Canada. In fact, Taiwan is so bad that the only recourse is to completely block some IP's from getting anywhere into our SMTP server farm. I'd actually like to block the whole country but that might affect some of our customers.
