Quite frankly I doubt they have any legal weight regardless of where
they are. I don't think you can unilaterally enter someone else into
a contract that they did not agree to. You put the message on the
public internet, unencrypted, and therefore you posted it for EVERYONE
to see. Simple as that. Those things are simply a stupid waste of
bandwidth.

P.S. I am not a lawyer and this isn't legal advice... it's merely me
pointing out how stupid some lawyers are ;).
