A MOVE by the University of Texas to block spam from an online dating site has been allowed by the US Supreme Court.
A 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled in August that UT did not violate the constitutional rights of White Buffalo Ventures when it blocked 59,000 e-mails in 2003.
Buffalo Ventures, which operates LonghornSingles.com appealed to the US Supreme Court claiming that it had complied with anti-spam laws and that federal law superseded the university's anti-spam policy.
The outfit appealed to the Supreme Court which decided that it would not hear the case, probably because they were washing the wigs that they don’t wear. Under US law, if the robed but not wigged ones don’t want to hear a case then the Court of Appeals ruling stands."
