Tis’ election season, and now spam season

Yep, with primaries over, we get to watch politicians kick into high gear. There will be mudslinging, dogfighting, barnbashing, and if this post from brainstorms is any indication, spambombing.

Ok, that “spambombing” thing is a new term. Even the master of spam terms, Ed Falk, doesn’t know that one. Why? Because I just made it up, dammit. The true definition is:

adj. – the flooding of email boxes with unsolicited mail, courtesy of politicians, between the second week of August and the first week of November, during election years.

It might also mean being the big loser of the world’s most expensive brand of popularity contest, and then selling your email list to a bunch of “email direct marketers.”
