Spam is like buses - nothing for a while then several come along together.
So, it wasn't an increase in increasing length/girth/stamina recently but a drop in other stuff being sent.
I had noticed a drop in the 'e greetings' I was being sent but there are still a few out there.
We're just waiting for it to be reconfigured for the next natural disaster and there's no point in spamming wondershares at the moment 'cos no-one's got any money anyway.
Will it be spam being sent from all our graphics processors next? Got to be some use for all that spare processing while folks are lost in Facebook.
