arbitraryaardvark writes "Mega-spammer Jeremy Jaynes was convicted in Virginia of spamming in '05, sentenced to 9 years, and lost his appeal, 4-3, at the Virgina Supreme Court. But the court has just ordered a new hearing on whether the anti-spam statute is unconstitutional under the First Amendment. Slashdot previously covered the appeal and the conviction."

    Come on guys, you are abridging the previous AC's freedom of speech by modding him Troll! Who cares if what he is doing has a direct, negative effect on the people who use this service! His rights to free speech are more important than your rights!

To err is human -- to blame it on a computer is even more so.
