I just found out why they call the unsolicited emails SPAM, I wonder if anyone else knows why?
Because it is crappy, looks like meat but isn't?
It's named after a Monty Python sketch.
Yup! That's what I heard
Remember that really annoying song that that snake (?) is singing over and over again? SPAM SPAM SPAM I thought it was kinda funny that they actually got the name from there :)
The Python programming language is also named after Monty Python.
I always thought it stood for:
Sorry people's automated mailing
but thats interesting.
Edit: Figured Sorry would work better then my original thought, for this forum that is.
Well I've always said for the Food product, SPAM stood for:
Synthetically Produced Artificial Meat.
(Actually, SPAM stands for Shoulder of Pork and hAM)
Separate names with a comma.
