Traditionally, the word “spam” as applied to email (and other forms of
electronic communication) means “unsolicited commercial communications” and
usually takes the form of unsolicited commercial email (UCE) and
unsolicited bulk email (UBE). Precisely how to define spam is a contentious
issue. Some define spam as UBE. Others believe that “bulk” is irrelevant.
They argue that the issue is merely whether the communication was
commercial in nature. For others, the issue is whether the communication
sent was solicited.
