Another Go At Making Spam Cost Money

beable Re:As much as I hate spam (242 comments)

We should treat SPAM differently because

Let's not forget that SPAM is a registered trademark of Hormel foods. Hormel says that they don't object to the use of the word "spam" to refer to unsolicited email, but they'd really like you to NOT use their trademark "SPAM" for that purpose.

I think it's a reasonable position for them to take, and out of respect for their delicious spiced ham food like product, we should all be using "spam" to mean "UCE", and "SPAM" to mean "delicious food".
