    You can drive yourself crazy trying to figure this out, or not and take my approach:

    1)Your average spammer might not have any reproductive organs. Therefore, they have a great deal of time on their hands and they are bitter.

    2) spammers are definitely full of hate and hurt feelings.

    3) Your average spammer most likely has a fear of face to face confrontations. This is why they are so comfortable operating in the shadows.

    4) Your average spammer most likely has an intimate relationship with a keyboard and is afraid of the opposite sex.

    5) Your typical spammer usually has deep rooted self esteem issues that are masked with arrogance and a false sense of superiority (or his name is Peggy).

    What is your take on the "spammer"?

    Am I the only one that is actually aware of the individual that is responsible for the bots?

    They can make money without doing anything.
    And you would be surprised how many Americans have bailed-out people in European jails,
    or helped Baron Shamu Azmuk transfer his money to an American bank.

    Not a sympathizer, just an American that's embarrassed by how many of us fall for the scams.
    Spammers exist because people give them money. Simple as that.

    I understand; had to sit through an entire week of social engineering spiel and how they work (during my regretful time working for Dell). Isn't that funny though? If the African American or Latino kid that lives down the street wants to sell grandma or grandpa raffle tickets they will view them with suspicion. However, they will not think twice about helping Hans, Sergey or even Mr. Adowabezi.
