War on SPAM!
SPAM (Self Propelled Advertising Material) is per def. e-mail or usenet advertisement posted, or mailed without the approval of the receipients, usually to a large number of people or usenet groups at the same time. They can contain anything from adds for harmless products such as books and software, but may also contain adds for pornographic material, illegal products, or illegal pyramid-schemes.
This is annoying, takes up a lot of bandwidth, and is in some cases even illegal. So why do we have to put up with it?! The answer is - we don't! Here are a few "dos and don'ts", and some links to resources that can help you further.
