    What were you doing writing a Spam analysis program before the
    first spam existed?

    http://www.multicians.org/thvv/mail-history.html

    "There was an earlier mass electronic mail message sent to a large
    community of unwilling readers [my definition of spam] that predates
    the 1978 DEC spam. This message was sent using CTSS MAIL about 1971, at
    a time of campus unrest and anti-war rallies."

    The first IMPs weren't even delivered until August 1969, and though
    MIT's single-system email system predates that, there is no
    recorded history of spam before 1971, and no recorded history
    of commercial spam before 1978.
