Spam is not merely annoying, it is also a serious drain on the resources of ISPs, other organizations, and Internet users. Sending Spam mail may seem like a cheap and convenient way to amplify marketing efforts, yet honest businesses rarely employ this Questionable marketing tool. Firstly, nobody wishes to receive unsolicited junk mail.
Secondly, it is considered both an annoyance and an intrusion of Privacy.
Thirdly, each sent e-mail message contributes to Internet traffic and uses up bandwidth.
An e-mail message does not reach its recipient instantaneously; instead, it is relayed by any number of systems en route until it reaches its Final Destination. Spam mail is often sent out in thousands or hundreds of thousands of copies, to huge numbers of unwitting recipients. This large load of messages often causes network problems and congestion, meaning that third parties as well as message recipients are suffering because some inconsiderate person or Company has pumped half a million copies of a message through the Internet. Unfortunately, there are many such worthless members of society.
