Spam In Here

Recommended Posts

Spam occurs when someone tries to slip in a link to something they're selling in a post or email. The post has no purpose other than to try to sell you something, even though they try to hide that fact usually (and usually quite lamely). The term comes from the potted meat product SPAM, but I'm not sure of how that term came to have the secondary meaning.

See Wikipedia for detail
