Default Where's the spam from

What gets me, is that I have never heard anyone who reads the spam.
So what's the point of posting it in the first place?

In normal advertising and sales circles, a direct salesman facing a
customer might get a 1 in 4 or 1 in 10 return, a direct mail marketer
might get 1 in 100 or 1 in 1000, a spammer might get 1 in 10, 000.
Since a spammer's costs are essentially zero per message it makes
sense for them.
