No, I'm not going to go into that. But I definitely shall provide a dispassionate perspective on why those accusations (the counter ones as well) are a bunch of bollocks. Not by any logical dissertation. Nay, I just think that anyone with a low threshold of spam-tolerance has:
(a) never been an engineer
(b) never lived in a boys hostel, where people chase each other from one end to the other of a corridor shouting "abey M****C***!!"
(c) never worked in companies where some 'valid points' raised at meetings are more inane than the most boring spam. Spam then become preferable in these cases, temporarily being raised to the status of a miniature bestseller.
(d) never owned an email account before
The last point is worth noting. I mean, we are in a day and age when most web-based email providers invest heavily in finding spam and filtering it out for you. Representative of the things that they manage to hide from us are messages like "Grow a massive package in your pants today" and "Any of these elegant women's watches will be a great gift to your fair one, mother, or girlfriend!" After all this, how could it be possible that people are still sensitive to spam?
Needless to say, an underground sense of humour also developed. There were the custodians of morality and all things good - proclaiming what was spam and declaiming all those who did. In the face of such damning authority, what power does the common man have? Well, the same kind that Laxman gave us every morning in the newspaper, and challenging the spam-guard came a one-liner sent to the entire student list: "This is not spam". Funny.
Overall, it's all about tolerance. Live and let spam. And that is what points (a), (b) and (c) would have reinforced and reaffirmed. I have great respect for a specific category of people: engineers, who have lived away from mummy-and-daddy, eating food that cows would not touch, and living with a bunch of half-crazed other guy engineers. That sort of situation tends to inculcate a lot of patience, spirituality, and a ton of horniness. I half-believe that tech companies take HR interviews only to try and figure out whether you are a potential spam-fundamentalist before they hire you (they wouldn't want to destroy the work culture of email-forwarding, would they?)
Sigh. The song says it all: Oh, when will they ever learn, oh, when will they ever learn...
 Yours truly was counted in for sending "too many emails regarding the theatre club". Whatta load of crap...
 If you're wondering how I know all this, then it's because I regularly go through my spam. No, no, not for finding any non-spam messages that were inadvertantly marked as spam (a Type-I error I think). I do it to understand the sheer creativity of the human race. My spam folder is a representative sample (yes, I've been doing too much statistics) of number of out-of-work third rate novelists being put to better (and probably more profitable) use, who would otherwise have churned up works like "One Night at the call centre". Reaffirms my faith. To quote my Eco prof - "Cathartic".
