Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Why I do not like spam

Published: Thursday 2008-10-02.

If you are reading my blog, you might wonder about why I react so forcefully to spam. The answer is simple; I do not like people who ruin it for others. Because that is exactly what they are doing, the people who send out spam. Right now, for instance, Telenor here in Norway have big problems in their e-mail systems due to spamming (translated):

Since Sunday abnormally large amounts of spam aimed at our servers have unfortunately led to problems with the e-mail system. At times, sending and receiving e-mail has been slow.

Spamming is abuse of free and open systems, theft of time, resources and money, and in many cases nowadays illegal in big parts of the world. That is why I do not like it.
