Thoughts Brought About By The Contemplation Of Spam. @_@

John W. Campbell often wrote that anything that "Everybody Knows" deserves to be examined closely because by virtue of the fact that everyone "knew" it they would believe it without stopping to think if it was still true when as when it was first said or if it had ever been true at all. He was quite fond of providing examples of those things that "Everybody knows" turning out to be completely wrong.

Since reading John Campbell I have often come across the phrase "Sex sells!" in more than one discussion of advertising.

But I wonder about that...

If it's true that "Sex sells!" then would porn sites need to spam? ^_~
