What is spam?


In a computer context, spam refers to unwanted and unsolicited messages sent via electronic means.

This can include email spam, with most email services coming equipped with a spam filter which automatically removes emails that look suspicious and redirects them into a specific spam folder. The user can then access this folder if necessary.

It can also include spam posted on other websites: for example, bots can be used to post spam into comments sections or forms on the website to boost exposure to unwilling viewers.
