Post What is spam?

I know spamming isn't a good thing,
but really,
what it means?

Spamming is when somebody types down random garbage. Such as ''fgfghgdfghghdfh''

Spamming is not a good thing to do.

It's really pretty much anything that isn't appropriate or relevant to the topic being discussed. It's allowed in TM, but that doesn't mean that you should spam. Just that you won't be punished and your posts probably won't get deleted.
A lot of people think it's fun, which is the main reason they do it, but I don't really understand it. There are plenty of better things to do than creating trash.

Also, it refers to advertising, which is not accepted on the forums, either.

I was wondering why Hammered isn't a mod anymore... Yeah, spam's pretty bad. Ever heard of the "Spamocalypse?"

That was when spam was brought to a whole new level. There was a mass post-deletion, followed by Total Mayhem having some different rules, and the banning of Dark Lord Farley, who for some reason is unbanned.

(Note. The only reason she is a puny mortal is because all her posts got deleted)

Yeah, a lot of those are Hamumuian names, like ArachniGourd (SpiderPumpkin), Recreatorizer (Regeneratorizer), Dark Legend (blackmyth), and WTG ( World of Hurt Guy). There are more.
Oh, and CDL would also spam with smileys, commonly with the phrase "I only like blushing goth girls!" followed by 50 blushing smileys. For instance, : ) Is mega spam.

Every couple of smileys, you need to put a space.

e.g.



to prevent smiley breakage.

That's where the word came from, then Monty Python's overuse of the word spam resulted in it meaning unwanted advertising emails. Gradually it's come to mean adverts on the forum, and then just any meaningless garbage.

Random question...kinda...but is it good if you're included-by-parody-in Spamumu?
(WHAT?!?! I just want to know, because I dunno what it means if you are, and DLF was a major spam-a-lot and was put in there, which makes me wondering if it means you've had a spam problem, but if it involves SP and REGen, well, I got nothing)
EDIT: No offense or anything similar to it intended, Hammer

So what is right and what is wrong?

Almost everyone who was active on the forum at the time is in Spamumu. Regeneratorizer was the Prince of Spam back then, so yes, he did have a spam problem. I myself was posting a lot of random semi-funny crud back then, mainly so to not give DLF the satisfaction of having more posts than me (which apparently made some people think I was "helping" DLF spam the forums, like Spamumu erroneously seems to imply, which wasn't true), and also to speed up the forming of an "anti-spam faction", which I then sided with when it became apparent that the anti-spam party would win.
