I agree with James on this one. They "described" their product in a very
flattering way, unnecessarily introducing marketing jargon ("known as
America's favorite", "00% beef with no preservatives", "no fillers", "daily
sliced" etc.). It is spam and in the future, near rather than far, we need
to start seriously thinking how we can combat such content
attacks/hijacking. There are some similarities to our work with
anti-harassment, but I hope we'll be able to develop a more dedicated
approach to this problem, that the Burger King manifestation is only a
single example of.
