Yeah, the term you use is "free" speech (you don't need to lecture me on
the alternate use of the word free in this context. I know what "free"
refers to in "free-speech") not "you pay for me to speak to you"-speech. I
have to pay a real out of pocket cost price to have spam sent to me. How
does that fit in with your argument?? Does free-speech give me the right
to harass people at their expense for as long as I want (and they can
afford to pay for me to do it)??
