AOL Spam Jurors Allowed Even If They Receive Spam On AOL

from the who-else-would-you-get? dept

In the first “felony” case against spammers, the defense apparently tried to bar AOL users from the jury, obviously realizing they might use this opportunity to punish spammers who targeted AOL. However, it appears they’ve received no such luck, as jury selection has concluded. Apparently, a few AOL customers made the cut — though, only after they answered questions suggesting they don’t want to spend their days making spammers cry for mercy. Of course, that might make you wonder if it’s really a jury of your “peers.”
