Filip Poutintsev, Spam Apologist

A recent post on LinkedIn from Finland’s finest is claiming to debunk all the arguments for why spam might be bad.

Filip, it doesn’t occur to you that the Internet community understood this to be the case long before big mail receivers and ESPs existed? You might wish to google Gary Thuerk, for example. On May 3, 1978, when he sent the first spam ever, you were all of minus nine years old, weren’t you. 🙂

So cut out the paranoia, it got old long before you had even got into the business.
