Ooooo - I like that. What an interesting concept..

I can just hear it in court now..

Plaintiff Counsel: "Sir, I understand you received a private communication from 
our server and took the information and made a parody on your website?? Didn't 
you READ the disclaimer at the bottom of the message"?


Defendant: "Er, yes I did, but it was null and void"

Plaintiff Counsel: "What do you mean?"

Defendant: "It was 'voidified' by my server on receipt"

Plaintiff Counsel: "And just how is that possibly?"

Defendant: "Did YOU read the disclaimer upon connection to port 25 of my
server as part of the intro message header that says all communication
disclaimers are null a voidified?? (I love that word, I'm gonna use it now)"
