Wave of the Future (Spam)

As I've suggested before, the SPAMming isn't the evil involved here. It's our
own complacency in tolerating the theft of bandwidth that SPAMming represents.
It doesn't matter today, but it will, absolutely, matter soon.

Bulk mail, whether in the snail-mail, or in email, is an effort to communicate.
It sends information to people who didn't ask for it, often because they weren't
even aware of the subject's existence. It's no different with SPAM. Sometimes
... rarely, for sure, but sometimes ... there's actually something of use in the
SPAM. Perhaps I wouldn't miss it, but once in a long while I do learn about
something that I find of use.
