Spam with a purpose - one of the tactics used by the U.S. military in getting Iraqi military units to surrender has been to send mass emailings to people within Iraq trying to feel out who might be interested in being approached for surrendering. These mailings have apparently been sent since well before the beginning of hostilities. Carpet bombing of buildings may be out of bounds, these days, but in the information wars we still use very inaccurate and hostile methods oftentimes. E-bombs, anyone?
