That's not what you want to target. What you do is point out things like
"At the moment, spammers are now using SMS - the next step could be
voicemail, where you have to pay to listen to a voicemail about a new
breast enlargement clinic" etc.
SPAM is not just an irritation for geeks that get twenty spam's a day, in
with their 300 mails from various lists & friends. It's potentially a
problem for the rest of politicians voters too.
