 First use of phrase "junk e-mail":

First uses of spam in that context?

Appears to mention a "Spam content:"

http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&threadm=2461%40tut.cis.ohio-state.edu&rnum=25&prev=/groups%3Fas_epq%3Dspam%26as_drrb%3Db%26as_mind%3D1%26as_minm%3D1%26as_miny%3D1987%26as_maxd%3D31%26as_maxm%3D12%26as_maxy%3D1987%26num%3D30%26as_scoring%3Dd%26hl%3Den


Mentions a quote of "major SPAM content"

Gettin' closer...

Could THIS be the one?

No, this one's earlier:

Aha!

Well, that just sucked up waaaay too much time.
