Spam, to me, is a) unsolicited mail whose b) sole purpose is to solicit a
sale. If he had that in his sig on a message he posted to a conversation
which contained otherwise useful information (however slight), then I
don't call it spam, myself.
If it was someone *else's* thread, and he just perked in to say
"meetoo!", then you have to look further, to things like "is the person a
regular contributor", etc...
If Spam were black and white, SA wouldn't have so many lines of code. :-)
