And in most social circles, while people are discussing about their works and hobbies and someone comes along and says: "i discovered a great hobby that also makes me a ton of money, it's called armed robbery", he won't be too welcome.
This makes no sense to me? A new member making his first post a very long advocacy of a program that is illicit on most poker sites is spam.
I actually looked it up and this is what I found, for what it is worth...
is the abuse of electronic messaging systems to indiscriminately send unsolicited bulk messages. While the most widely recognized form of spam is e-mail spam
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-mail_spam), the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messaging_spam), Usenet newsgroup spam
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newsgroup_spam), Web search engine spam
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spamdexing), spam in blogs
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam_in_blogs), wiki spam
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki_spam), Online classified ads
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classified_advertising) spam, mobile phone messaging spam
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_phone_spam), Internet forum spam
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forum_spam) and junk fax transmissions
Spamming remains economically viable because advertisers have no operating costs beyond the management of their mailing lists, and it is difficult to hold senders accountable for their mass mailings. Because the barrier to entry
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barriers_to_entry) is so low, spammers are numerous, and the volume of unsolicited mail has become very high. The costs, such as lost productivity and fraud, are borne by the public and by Internet service providers
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_service_provider), which have been forced to add extra capacity to cope with the deluge. Spamming is widely reviled, and has been the subject of legislation in many jurisdictions.[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)
