I always believed that the gaming term of "spamming a unit/weapon" came from the slang for lots of unwanted email. In that sense, it's something that shows up in such volume that dealing with it can be come annoying and repetitive.
It's a valid strategy for winning a battle. It only becomes a problem if your gaming partners find fighting your army annoying and repetitive and would rather not play against you anymore because of that.

"Wake up. Pray. Train. Pray. Drop screaming through the atmosphere from low orbit into a raging battlefield, and take the fight to enemies that may outnumber us by as little as three to one. Do battle with the most horrific enemies of mankind imaginable and charge into lines of weapons that could shred a tank into ribbons. Afterward, lunch, time permitting." - Marshal Arturas, 15/05/08
Why is your friend complaining about the way YOU field your army. It is your army, do with it as you please. If he has a problem tell him to buy you a heavy support opinion to make up for the missing thunderfire cannon or do not play him.
Note that this is coming from a guy that fields 4 heldrakes at 1500 pts and 6 at 2000 pts. I plan on having 12 at a 4000 pts apoc game later this year. Why don"t i play chaotic salamander?
Really? No one's linked the Monty Python sketch yet? Really?
I'm so disappointed in you people. I mean, it's spamming about spam!
Sigh. I have to do everything around here:
Right, with that out of the way, I find it fun that people are more prone to calling "SPAM!" when a unit is especially effective or dangerous. 2 Helldrakes, Riptides or Storm Ravens = spam. But it takes 3 Vanguard, Terminator squads, Vindicators to qualify as spam.
