Who defines "scum" when you get the email announcing a solution to your 
most urgent sexual problems?

Who defines "scum" when the guy shows up at your office with a lot of 
the world's finest wrist watches for sale at unbelievably low prices?

Who defines "scum" when you get the pallet of toner nobody remembers 
ordering?

Who defines "scum" when the seedy character you never met before shows 
up to take your daughter out?
