Default Spam?

I don't understand. What exactly is spam? I hear so many things being considered spam that now I'm confused. I want to know exactly what spam is so I don't do it. I've heard that posting random things that don't have anything to do with the topic is spam. I've also heard that when someone asks a question and you say "i don't know" that you're spamming. I've know read that random polls are spam. It seems like everywhere I go, people are being accused of spamming (and sometimes I can't figure out why!). So, could someone please clarify? You know, give me a clear definition on what is considered spam and what isn't?

Default Re: Spam?

When I first started WI I didn't know what spam was considered, also.
Here are some spam I see:

If you were on a thread about Kittens and you've seen a post saying,
"I have a brother." That would be spamming!

Electronic junk mail or junk newsgroup postings. Some people define [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]spam[/COLOR][/COLOR] even more generally as any unsolicited e-mail. However, if a long-lost brother finds your e-mail address and sends you a message, this could hardly be called spam, even though it's unsolicited. Real spam is generally e-mail advertising for some product sent to a mailing list or newsgroup. In addition to wasting people's time with unwanted e-mail, spam also eats up a lot of [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]network[/COLOR][/COLOR] bandwidth. Consequently, there are many organizations, as well as individuals, who have taken it upon themselves to fight spam with a variety of techniques. But because the Internet is public, there is really little that can be done to prevent spam, just as it is impossible to prevent junk mail. However, some online services have instituted policies to prevent spammers from spamming their subscribers.
There is some debate about the source of the term, but the generally accepted version is that it comes from the Monty Python song, "Spam spam spam spam, spam spam spam spam, lovely spam, wonderful spam…" Like the song, spam is an endless repetition of worthless text. Another school of thought maintains that it comes from the [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]computer[/COLOR][/COLOR] group lab at the University of Southern California who gave it the name because it has many of the same characteristics as the lunchmeat Spam:
  • Nobody wants it or ever asks for it.
  • No one ever eats it; it is the first item to be pushed to the side when eating the entree.
  • Sometimes it is actually tasty, like 1% of junk mail that is really useful to some people.
