What I don't understand with this lawsuit is what exactly is being
alleged, in concrete technical terms. Somehow I fail to see how AOL could
update the return address of messages sent by Cyber Promo unless Cyber
Promo was posting them from AOL, in which case they should have signed
the TOS agreement and their account would have been cut off without much
room for a lawsuit. So I have to assume that these bounces were for
recipients *at* AOL that were out of disk space or the like? But then, in
this case the messages would normally have bounced back to Cyber Promo
and crashed *their* machine.
I think it says a lot when a spammer takes an ISP to court and the only
descriptions you can find are in lawyerese with all the important details
removed. It looks like the goal is to set a legal precedent in favour of
spamming, and the less factual information there is, the more likely this
is to happen.
