What is spam?
Spam is the use of the internet to convey a particular message to
a large number of people who did not request it, or to repeatedly
convey such a message. This usually involves unsolicited mass emailing,
pop-up adverts, and other forms of adware.
In another context it can also mean an attempt to fool search engine
spiders into ranking web pages higher than they would normally be,
by the over use of various keywords, or misleading meta content,
or repeated resubmissions also known as Spam Indexing, Spamdexing.

Another Spam Definition
Webopedia” describes spam as electronic junk mail or junk newsgroup
postings. Some people define spam 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.
Effects of spam
In addition to wasting people's time with unwanted e-mail, spam also
eats up a lot of network 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
There are a lot of spam control options available, including free
spam software, and free spam filters.
We have found that some are effective and others are merely users
to get you to download adware and spyware.

Avoiding internet spam
There was a time when it was relatively easy to keep your
email address reasonably secure. But now there are so many programs,
and unethical, collecting emails via the internet that there is
very little chance of avoiding them all. The problem is that these
email lists are continually being sold, over and over again. Some
Internet service providers now offer a Free Spam Filters as part
of their services. If your service provider does not offer this
option, or if their filter is not effective, you will need to invest
in some form of spam killer software
