Ah, the good old pre-spam days! I was not working for a computer company, but I finally got online in 93 through various things like prodigy, aol, compuserv, etc. I do remember a fateful day when I was in aol, back when it was $4 an hour and there was a chat room called 'spam' I thought it was rather odd that a group of people would be discussing an old monty python skit and jumped in. After a few minutes it was obvious they were not talking about monty python. even then, they were there figuring out how to spam spam spam. not all of us were lucky enough to be working main frames in the 80s for the usenet dang it.
