sources), trolling (posting controversial
messages in newsgroups to generate responses), mail bombing (inundating
a user with email without any serious intent to correspond), generating
a higher volume of outgoing mail than a normal user (20% or more of
available system resources), and subscribing someone else to an
electronic mailing list without that person's permission.
