I just ran across this:  Back in May of 1978 the very first spam e-mail was sent by Carl Gartley for a DEC marketing representative, Gary Thuerk, in order to advertise a new line of DEC computers. Not surprising is that people back in ‘78 were just as annoyed with receiving spam as we all are in the present. Today of course the spam problem is much worse with spam being estimated at 80 to 95 percent of all e-mail traffic depending on who you talk to.
