Spam is the use of messaging systems to send unsolicited messages (spam), especially advertising, as well as to resend messages to the same website. While the most widely popular form of spam is email spam, this term applies to similar abuses in other media: spam in instant messaging services, spam in the Usenet newsgroup, spam in the web search engine, blog spam, spam on wikis, spam in online advertising, mobile phone spam in messages, online forum, spam mailings, social spam, spam in mobile applications, television advertising and spam in file sharing. It is named after spam, a meat breakfast, in the form of a draft of Monty Python about a restaurant that has spam in every dish and where the cartridges annoyingly repeat “spam” again and again.

Spam remains economically viable as advertisers do not incur any operating expenses other than managing their mailing lists, servers, infrastructures, IP ranges and domain names, and it is difficult to account for senders for their bulk mailings. Costs, such as loss of productivity and fraud, are borne by the public and Internet service providers who were forced to add additional features to cope with the volume. Spam has been the subject of legislation in many jurisdictions.

The term “spam” is derived from a 1970 spam sketch from the BBC television series Monty Python’s Flying Circus. The sketch set in the cafe has a waitress reading a menu, where each item, except for one, includes canned meat with spam. When the waitress reads a menu filled with spam, the Viking patrons choir drowns out all the conversations with the song, repeating “Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam .. Great Spam! Great Spam!”. The excessive spam mentioned is a reference to the widespread distribution of this and other imported canned meat products in the UK after World War II (UK rationing period), as the country struggled to restore its agricultural base.

In the 1980s, the term was adopted to describe some abusive users who often visited BBS and MUD, who repeated “Spam” a lot of times, to scroll other users’ text from the screen. In the early chat services, such as PeopleLink and in the early days of Online America (later known as America Online or AOL), they actually flooded the screen with quotes from the Monty Python Spam sketch. This was used as a tactic by insiders of a group that wanted to kick newcomers out of the room so that normal conversation could continue.
