Confessions Poll: Should Spammers Be Considered Terrorists?

I check the spam folder to make sure a real email didn't get sent there by accident. I find it interesting when I get an email from myself. This one was rather innocuous. It was some financial scheme. Viagra and MILFs are far more common subject lines. Did you know over half of all email sent across the planet is spam?

I'm tired of it. I'm tired of receive unwanted email. I'm sure network admins are tired of that much unwanted traffic on their servers. I'm tired of someone hijacking my email address to peddle their filth. I consider a deluge of spam to be denial of my internet services.

Time for a poll: should spammers be considered terrorists?

A: Yes, send the FBI after them.
B: Yes, send in the SEALs.
C: Yes, let the IRS follow the money.
D: Yes, the spammer masterminds are hiding in a cave near the Pakistan border.
E: Yes, one laser guided 500lb bomb will solve the problem.
