Hormel no longer objects to "spam".
In a long-running dispute between Hormel Foods Corp., the maker of the pork luncheon meat SPAM, and spammers who send unwanted e-mail, Hormel is giving up. In a message posted on the official Spam Web site www.spam.com, Hormel Foods says it no longer objects to the use of the term "spam" to denote unwanted commercial e-mail -- if it is spelled "spam" (lowercase), and not accompanied by pictures of the luncheon meat.
