From WordNet (r) 2.0 :

n : the calculated use of violence (or threat of violence)
against civilians in order to attain goals that are
political or religious or ideological in nature; this is
done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear
[syn: act of terrorism, terrorist act]
(see dict.org

This is my proposition.

SPAM be declared as commercial and individual terrorism, on the basis that it uses coercion, at times intimidation, and often fear, to accomplish its goals of commercial gain.

Worse than those who believe that their acts are for the betterment of a people or society, these spam-ists do nothing but exploit the private citizens and companies of the world for their selfish gains. This is a war that we CAN win, by education and surgical military strikes. I think if we are able to determine that over 25 e-mails of an unsolicited nature, employing fear, intimidation, and coercion, the person deemed responsible for such atrocities should be held, not only physically responsible, but for every recipient, he should be held liable for no less than $1,000 USD, as well as reparations to general identity thefts for the amount of $100,00 USD.

Holding them to such strict standards will hopefully discourage these spam-terrorists. This, also, is a war that would win the support of not only the citizens of the United States, but the world over, indeed, any human being with an ounce of decency and a computer will shout for joy at the simple idea of such an idea coming to fruition. I'm sure even the United Nations wouldn't hem and haw over such a serious threat to all free people!

Workers of the world, Unite!
