1. I pay for my downloads, in phone time and online time. If someone
uses that time against my wishes, I have every right to be
upset. Some would perhaps call this stealing.
2. It's not the equivalent of someone phoning me to offer me
double-glazing; it's the equivalent of someone phoning my entire
neighbourhood, calling at my expense (see 1)
3. Despite assurances to the contrary, it's indiscriminate. I have
received spam for america-only offers despite quite plainly having
a ".ie" address.
I don't think it's ever been an issue of whether it's cool to oppose
spam or not.
4. Pyramid schemes.
