Katakana spam

I’m not sure how I would manage without the Gmail spam filter.  A consequence of having my email address published for any nefarious spiders to pick up, I suppose.

But, even then, it’s not perfect.  I’ve had a couple of important messages spammed by mistake and so remain unread.  So, I try and look once a week just to make sure I’m not missing anything.

Lately the volume of messages has exploded, and the vast majority of them appear to be coming from Asia:

Is this just me or are others seeing the same thing?  Any idea what’s behind this?
