In an article about a new Australian anti-spam law, Paul Ducklin at Sophos blog gives us some great new appellations:
SPIT - spam using internet telephony
SPIM - spam over instant messaging
SPASMS - spam via SMS
SPATTER - spam via Twitter
SPEWS - spam through electronic web submissions.
He calls them acronyms, but that's no reason to quibble when the material is so full of richness.
Bloggers are well aware of SPEWS, those sneaky advertisements disguised as innocent comments left at blog entries. C-SPAM perhaps?
