Don't be so sure. 

Most of the spam sent in my direction is stopped by my ISP's greylisting
system: before that was implemented 80% of the mail I received was spam.
Now 8% of the mail I receive is spam, but most of that (80-90%) arrives
via the Wine mailing list and, whenever I've looked at the source, its
almost all been submitted via the CodeWeavers forum, which also feeds
into the Wine mailing list with, judging from the headers, no spam
filtering used.

I'd say that under half of this junk is computing-related.
