BlackBerry Messenger is getting hit with spam again, and it’s starting to get a little worrisome about RIM’s ability to keep the message client spam-free. Spam can easily kill a messaging service as everyone has seen with Windows Messenger. I personally don’t log in to Windows Messenger anymore because the second I do, I’m inundated with spam. If this continues, the value of BBM will be seriously diminished.
Here is what the message says:
