Josh, the founder and developer of Spam Gourmet who has been running the website since the year 2000 has passed away in the month of February, he suffered from a Glioblastoma Multiforme (“GBM”), a type of brain cancer. The service will remain alive, up an running thanks to his son, Josiah.

I just thought it was important and kind to remember a person who dedicated so much effort and time into a libre project that helps people’s privacy. If you are more interested on the event, here are some more forum posts.

I also heard a lot of nice things about SpamGourmet (it’s the inspiration for my startup :slight_smile:) and really like its user community. According to some Spamgourmet veteran users that I’ve been in talks with, SpamGourmet hasn’t released new features for a while though and it’s rather in a maintenance mode now.

No, the service is quite outdated and it is just working, but well, it’s a nice project to see there since they are pioneers.
