spam bait n.
Email addresses included in, or comprising
the entirety of, a Usenet message so that spammers mining a
newsgroup with an address harvester will collect them. These
addresses can be people who have offended or annoyed the poster, or
who are included so that a spammer will spam an official, thereby causing
himself trouble. One particularly effective form of spam bait is
the address of a teergrube.
