I have three pro-Conservative spam messages in my box today; those are, of course, just the ones that got through the filter. It's hard to say how many others might have existed on the input side. I've also seen several copies of the same message posted on various Usenet newsgroups. I am sure that the official Conservative campaign had nothing to do with these messages, and I'm aware that they could even have been sent by someone who supported some other party and was trying to smear the Conservatives. I haven't received any spam supporting any other Canadian political group in this election, though. If the Conservative campaign were really smart, this would be a great opportunity for them to score some points by denouncing spam - in some medium other than the Net, of course.
