Tomorrow's World was a show on BBC TV about innovations and tech stuff and I thought a good name for our computing and tech section.

We tend to refer to spam as people posting purely to advertise their businesses without joining in with the general chat on the forum.... or people posting links to dodgy sites that could cause damage to your computer... p0rn/gamblng sites etc.

Please do be careful when clicking on external links - I generally don't click on a link unless it's from a member that has been posting for a little while.

or SPAM can mean unsolicited commercial email.

www.spamusement.com has a load of cartoons from a bloke who got sick of all the spam he kept recieving. it's a safe link, I don't link to anything potentially damaging cos i dont want to get sued.
