Publisher: For the longest time we were ad-free. We have just begun offering very low profile advertising in order to help pay for the huge costs of this operation. But for years we were completely supported by my consulting and articles. WE CONTINUE to be avid anti-spam advocates and spam fighters. 60-Seconds often deals with the war against cybercrime.
