If they fall into my definition of spammers, yes. This is the defining point, 
I've not seen this spam I don't do wiki's but if its just click links then 

They get paid per click generally the end destination has nothing to do with 
the mail per say, they will agree to pay a fee to a marketing company who 
will employ a lump of lard laid on a bed with a keyboard 200 sim cards and a 
plethora of yahoo, freeserve, gmail etc etc accounts.

He will right the mail with the click links embedded if you click on the link 
two things happen you go to the site ww.big-mommer-does-it-best.com and his 
site/database gets a record of your click he presents his tally of clickers 
and gets anything from 5p upto anything per click.

Thats why they have to send such vast volumes to get the rewards, they don't 
care if you don't buy the product or service at the end of the hyperlink as 
they only get paid if the link is clicked.

Here endeth the lesson god bless you punters one and all ;-)
