by Dimitrov, Dragomir V

Abstract (Summary)
Some web sites require registration in order to use their free services. But

is this really free? The goal of this paper is to describe an experiment that

was conducted to explore the relation between registering in different

websites and the amount of junk emails received. The whole experiment

was divided into three periods and the collected data from them was

compared. The paper contains also an analysis of the results and

recommendations for the users on how to avoid or at least limit the spam

in their mailboxes.
