...just hope that dedicated vegeterians will forgive me for this...  :)
If wondering what this is all about,here 's a description,
taken directly from the Spamhaus Project's FAQ here:

SPAM
SPAM Chopped Pork and Ham is a famous canned meat product made mainly from ham.
Great in sandwiches, salads or mac & cheese,or with eggs,cheese,or pineapples,or sliced,diced, baked or fried.
The name derives from "sp(iced h)am".SPAM is a registered trademark of Hormel Foods Corporation.
The product name "SPAM" (used always in uppercase),
has nothing to do with the internet jargon word "spam" meaning unsolicited bulk email.
While "spam" (junk email) is bad for internet users,SPAM (Chopped Pork and Ham) is good for internet users.
If you have never tasted SPAM, try it today!

...came across an article with spam statistics while reading Sunday's newspaper this morning,
in short,according to security firm SoftScan,96.1% of e-mails currently sent out are spam...
and according to Microsoft's Hotmail service,the number gets even bigger,up to 98%...
And these huge numbers get even more interesting when compared to previous years statistics...
eg.back with early 2003,spam was covering "only" 30% of the outgoing messages... :(
