Spam, Spim, Spit

More jargon. I was reading a Wired article about the probability of spam becoming a problem with VoIP (Voice over IP). If you are considering replacing or enhancing your phone system with VoIP, you might want to read it.

What interested me, however, was the language. Spam, of course, we all understand. Spim I’ve also heard about — Spam Over Instant Messaging. Spit was totally new to me — Spam Over Internet Telephony. So, spam over VoIP would be spit. 😉
