If your pertaining to the spammers in this community. They are the users who usually post nonsense topics, mostly on a one line form but not always. They also love to respond to topics with a nonsense comment also in with the usual one line form. In the general sense, they are the ones who are only after for the money and don't care if the they have posted or answered a nonsense and unsensible topics.

Spam is unwanted emails, usually in high volumes. It's a real nuisance on the net, and most of the big companies have departments devoted to stopping it. It's also a very derogatory term for useless posts on forums like this, sometimes meaning copied posts about whether or not you like cornflakes/insert noun here, repeated endlessly. Most of us loathe the things.
