Everybody likes a pound or two of fried spam and a dozen eggs along with some Texas toast and jelly, a big stack of flap jacks and a big glass of OJ. Everybody hates the kind of spam that shows up on blogs or in our emails.
"But spam is worse than irritating. It is a drain on business productivity, an increasingly costly waste of time and resources that clogs corporate networks and distracts workers. Among consumers, it spreads scams, pornography and even computer viruses. Worse, spammers prey on less sophisticated e-mail users, including children, threatening their safety and privacy."
