While you are waiting for WebWalker to answer, I will affirm what you have
surmised. Spamming is attaching a message to whatever is already there
and reposting the whole blessed thing. It took me a while to figure this
out, especially since I live in Austin, Texas, the home of an annual event
called Spamorama. You haven't lived until you have tried Spam Chip
Cookies... Well, maybe you have lived... I dunno.
