spit

According to Internet and technical publications, spit (spam over internet telephony) is already an acronym, even though as of October 2004 there have been no reported cases of spit. Much like spam and spim, it is believed that as internet telephony becomes more popular with consumers, spit is sure to follow. In September 2004, a U.S.-based company called Qovia filed two patent applications for technology to stop spam over Internet telephony or voice-over IP (VoIP) that involves making phone calls using the Internet.
