Happy Birthday, dear Spam

Brad Templeton, internet historian, says that May 3rd will mark the 25th anniversary of the first Spam message. People *hated* that message on Arpanet, as you will read here, in a reprint of that first piece of Spam and some of the reactions to the message. I think you'll find it an interesting piece of 'net lore.
