Since I get less spam in a normal day than I do regular mail, and I get a lot more spam (and a lot more regular mail) than the average person, I wouldn't want to try to fight from that position in court. "But your honor, 5% of his email was spam, we had to kill that in order to provide the service." "But you were killing all his legitimate mail traffic from the 2nd-largest ISP in the country." "We had to, he got three spams from them last week." Rings kinda hollow. It gets worse if you killed what you thought was spam, and it was SOLICITED commercial email he signed up for. I get quite a bit of that.
