Spam and punishment

SpamAssassin. SpamKiller. Spam Punisher. And, of course, Spam Must Die! Judging from the names of these and other antispam utilities, a veritable army of technology companies is attempting to blast junk e-mail off the face of the earth. But every person with an e-mail address knows the ugly truth: Spam is alive, kicking, and trashing our in-boxes.
And to swipe a phrase from Nietzsche, what doesn't kill spam makes it stronger.
