Does this seem as odd to everyone else as it does to me? Or am I just reaping the rewards of being a gmail user?

Since I opened my account what must have been at least 2 weeks ago, I havent received a single spam email!?! Do the boffins at google have some sort of new secret weapon for killing spam? (like chopping off the fingers of it’s originators perhaps?) Either way my interest is piqued and I shall continue to monitor the situation with a critical eye…
