Spam Spam

Someone is spending me (the admin of use Perl;) spam to prove that the email to them, that they requested, is not spam. It's unsolicited, it's commercial, and it's email. That makes it spam. It amazes me that the users of this system completely miss the irony of it. And there's no way I am going to respond to it.
