spam 2

zero derivation
To perform an action repeatedly, esp. in a cheap and annoying manner.
 
Used most commonly while playing a video game, when an opponent takes advantage of a strategy that keeps him/her from harm, while disadvantaging others.
Etymology : Likely derived from 'spam', meaning worthless email messages, itself derived from the brand of canned meat 'Spam', due to the analogy between the annoyance resulting from a flood of junk mail and the annoyance of being unable to compete on fair terms.
