Spam is a delicious processed luncheon meat product that your mom cooks with fucking everything. Spam is also a legitimate form of advertising and a multi-million dollar industry that everyone loves to hate. Spam had its origin when authors like Alexandre Dumas were paid by the word to publish novels so they would be of superior quality. Most spammers make an honest living out of reposting the same quality content over and over again, ad infinitum, you know, until people really get the picture. Sadly, some people invoke actual wire, mail, and e-mail fraud laws to severely abuse these humble public servants simply trying to get the word out about their new methods of curing erectile dysfunction. Some, however, spam with malicious intent on forums and message boards. Those people are huge cunts.

Don't knock it. It's got its own key. Hormel Foods Corporation, the makers of spam, have revealed future revisions of their spam would use the latest in 128-bit public encryption technology for the cans, as the traditional key is insecure, especially as it is included with the can.

Three great characters to spam on board with character limits on their posts are the following : ፼ (U+137C), ₔ, and  (U+E366) (seriously, those are three single characters) because they are hueg liek Xbox and will allow you to cover more page area with the small character limit.

In passing, it is worth noting that Hormel Foods Corp, maker of the meat product mentioned above, has pursued intellectual property claims on the basis of trademark infringement by anti-spam companies such as "Spambusters" and "Spam Attack". Hormel foods has lost every single such case it has ever launched, but this has nothing to do with the free publicity afforded the manufacturers by the fact that this WWII-era concoction of pigs' lips and arseholes would be swiftly forgotten by a relieved public were it not for its name now being mentioned a gazillion times a day.

Costs of Spam

To quote TOW, The European Union's Internal Market Commission estimated in 2001 that "junk e-mail" cost Internet users €10 billion per year worldwide. It was estimated at least 100 years ago that spam cost Internet users $3.85 per can worldwide.
