Spam is an issue about consent, not content. Whether the email message is an advert, a scam, porn, a begging letter or an offer of a free lunch, the content is irrelevant - if the message was sent unsolicited then the message is spam.

Spim (short for spam over instant messaging), is a type of spam that uses IM platforms as the transport medium. Users of different public IM systems, who use public profiles are quite likely to receive unsolicited advertising messages from spammers (when referring to spam over instant messaging, they are called spimmers) . Similar to e-mail spam, spim messages are advertisements and will usually contain an embedded hyperlink link to visit the Web site this individual or bot is marketing

Spit (short for spam over internet telephone) Similar to spam and spim, spit offers spammers a low-cost alternative to unsolicited marketing. Mass marketing using automated voice messages is accomplished literally with the push of a button. The attraction to spammers, of course, is that spit can be fully automated and is certainly cheaper than staffing a call center with people to make voice calls. Spit is seen in a variety of forms from spammers sending out automated marketing messages to pranksters interjecting words into a VoIP conversation . audible only to receiver but not the caller.

UCE (unsolicited commercial e-mail) is a legal term used to describe an electronic promotional message sent to a consumer without the consumer's prior request or consent given to that specific sender.

Spamvertising is the practice of sending E-mail spam, advertising a website.

All Domain Hosting Providers Have A Zero Tolerance Spam Policy:
We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail, bulk emailing, and spam. Purchased lists and selling of lists will be treated as spam. Any user who sends out spam will have their account terminated with or without notice.
Sites advertised via SPAM (Spamvertised) may not be hosted on our servers. This provision includes, but is not limited to SPAM sent via fax, phone, postal mail, email, instant messaging, or usenet/newsgroups.
We reserve the right to charge the holder of the account used to send any unsolicited e-mail a clean up fee or any charges incurred for blacklist removal.

UBE (unsolicited bulk email) is another legal term for spam. The most common type of UBE is unsolicited commercial email (UCE): bulk email that is trying to get the recipient to buy some product or service. However, UBE encompasses not only unsolicited bulk commercial mailings but also email chain letters, personal campaign mailings, messages with virus-laden attachments, and messages containing virus hoaxes, among other possibilities.
The defining characteristics of UBE are:
    It is sent as a mass mailing to a number of recipients.
    At least one of the intended recipients has not agreed to receive messages from the sender.

Important facts about Unsolicited Bulk Email And Internet Service Providers:

(1) The sending of Unsolicited Bulk Email ("UBE") is banned by all Internet service providers worldwide.

(2) The SBL ( Spam Block List ) is based on the internationally-accepted definition of Spam as "Unsolicited Bulk Email". Therefore anyone sending UBE on the Internet, regardless of whether the content is commercial or not, illegal or not, is a sender of spam - and thus a spammer. All senders of UBE need to be fully aware that (A) they are breaking their ISP's Terms of Business contracts and they will lose their Internet accounts and access if they send UBE and (B) they will be placed on the Spam Block List (SBL) if they send UBE.
