Spamy sauce

If Monty Python made spam famous, Korea made it infamous for breaking all records on the internet variety - even on the go (last year, "mobile spam" outscored "classic spam" by a 2 to 1 ratio). Lycos, now owned by Korea's leading portal and e-mail service provider (Daum), released a new spam killer : a screensaver designed to overwhelm the spammer's servers by distributed denial of service while you're away from your computer (over 30,000 users so far). The concept is called "make love not spam", but could be dubbed "spam the spammers". Stephane MOT
