What is spam?


One way of solving the spam problem in this context is Captchas, which require a poster to authenticate themselves as a human.

Spam is named after the eponymous foodstuff, the brand of precooked pork that dates back to the 1930s. Spam was lampooned in a Monty Python sketch in the 1970s about a cafe serving only spam, which may have led to its adoption as a byword for something unpleasant and over-abundant.
