Spam was most biggest, nay the most over-hyped, security story in 2002.

A Tsunami of spam will render your email useless, unless you sign up to spam-busting software and services. Next year, there will be even more unsolicited bulk mail, world+dog warns.

So what better way to end the year than to point you towards a Web-based game where you earn points for destroying spam and cartoon spammers? Yes it's Spamwars, playing in a galaxy not so far away (the game is set in London) right now.

Share and enjoy. ®
