A problem persisting for going on at least 5 millennia...
“Children today are tyrants. They contradict their parents, gobble their food, and tyrannize their teachers.” – Socrates
“The Earth is degenerating today. Bribery and corruption abound. Children no longer obey their parents, every man wants to write a book, and it is evident that the end of the world is fast approaching.” – Assyrian tablet, ca. 2800 BC

I like your quotations T., but isn't a book referred to on a tablet in 2800 BC a huge anachronism?

Well...yes & no. To the degree that the answer is "yes": I think the "quotation" is hilarious. That's why I saved it in the first place.
To the degree that the answer is "no": Because they couldn't produce or reproduce books very easily doesn't mean they couldn't write them--& while the only writings that survive from that period are clay (& perhaps stone), they did use papyrus as well.
Not to make light of anyones' particular faith:
SPAM... hoards of locusts... frogs raining from the sky...
I'd say that--to some degree--SPAM is an outgrowth of the "modern" plague of darkness--that being barely literate (& functionally illiterate) masses with access to numerous outlets of expression & the mantra of "free speech" (with minimal thought).
