I am not sure how knowing what ACM is affects anything.
_I_ certainly know what ACM is and I consider ACM.ORG
to be a major source of spam.  I have configured my mail
reader to put team-ada mail into one folder and everything
else from ACM into the spam folder.  I made the mistake of
once giving my email address to ACM and they continue to
deluge me with mail I don't want.  I have repeatedly asked
them not to send me mail, and they continue to do so.  If
that is not spam, I don't know what is.
