Seagull Terms, Old and New

Old: Seagull Management:

"Fly in, dump on everyone, fly off". (I first head this when a company I worked for merged with another company. It accurately described the first contact with the new management, who very nicely told us his visit was 'Seagull Management' and explained what it meant.)

New: Seagull Spamming on Yahoo Groups:

Two ways:
1. Spam the management, group-name-owner@yahoogroups.com or
2. Join group, post spam group-name@yahoogroups.com and leave group.

Both of these seem to be on the rise!

Now I have a new term, Seagull Spam!

Seagull Shooting:  When the Seagulls dump on the Group, Mike bans them and posts their name to the Banned users group to make other group/list owners aware of them.smiley
