When they say "spam-free" they're using a marketing technique known (to quote Jon Carroll) as _lying_.

I have a different idea.

Come up with a site called SpamWorld.Com™.

The whole purpose of the site is to deliberately subscribe to as many channels of spam as possible.

Then index all the spam into a search engine, so people who are truly interested in spam can get all the information about it they could possibly want.

There would be a news page that showed the truly interesting spams every day.

Naturally spammers could pay money (lots of it!) to get their messages on the home page.

There would be a disclaimer of any editorial integrity right on the home page in red for all to see.

What do you think?
