Is email spam a form of trespass?

Boycott Internet Spam!

Here's a site that has it all. "Our aim is to provide the best collection of anti-spam links and resources to be found anywhere on the Internet," write the site administrators, who describe themselves as "Internetters with a collective century-plus of experience in the online world." Find them at http://spam.abuse.net. Boycott Internet Spam! includes the most extensive list of "responsible anti-spam" sites (at http://spam/goodsites/index.html) we've found.

The site is sponsored by Paul Vixie of Vixie Enterprises, a private consulting service which also runs MAP, a Mail Abuse Prevention System project.
