I guess that phrase is redundant, but I just thought of really evil spam. Many computer viruses out there spread themselves by emailing the source code to everyone in an infected user's address book. I've also heard of some viruses that send all the email addresses they find to spammers, to be put on mailing lists. What if the two were combined? You'd get email about becoming debt-free, enlarging your penis, or getting a university diploma from your best friend, co-worker, or parents. Eck.

Bummer of the Week Award II
