Spam Is Not Free Speech

Just stumbled upon this discussion over at Slashdot:

"In a split (4-3) decision, a Virginia court has upheld the verdict against the spam king making it clear that spam is not protected by the U.S. Constitution’s first amendment or even its interstate commerce clause."

My first thought was: 4 to 3?!?!?  Who the heck were the 3 people who actually thought spam could be considered free speech? Do they not own computers?
