(picture of can of spam)
SPAM is computer-slang for unsolicited (mostly commercial) e-mail. Or in other words, junk e-mail. Stupid, wastes of resources such as advertisements for solar powered flash lights, laser-guided bayonets and the like.

If you run a business which uses "robots" to surf the USENET newgroups and Web sites across the globe looking for hapless mailto URLs in order to send your silly advertisements to, then you are a generator of SPAM and therefore should be smitten.

Why is SPAM such a problem?
