Spam is unsolicited advertising.  A bot is a robot, or other automated 
device.  So Spambots on a usenet newsgroup send apparently innocent 
questions that also contain links to their websites, or the trash 
they're pushing.  Somebody here claimed that the trash got stripped from 
the message before it went out to us.

All I know is it was obvious that there were about 8 spam messages, and 
so I ignored them.  They were from one email address (then two), and in 
rapid succession, and none of them asked anything relevant to this 
newsgroup.  To others it wasn't so obvious, and numerous people have 
wasted time responding to them.
