I wonder if people realize how the old 'you'll hear from my attorney' line is laughed at?

That's pretty deplorable of them to do that though. Thankfully I don't use IM anymore so I haven't gotten it, but i get plenty of email spam

Agreed. It reminds me over the 105 precinct down the block from me... and yes, would you really waste your time contacting your lawyer about being spammed through AIM?

I really don't see the issue. You have added your AIM contact info here so obviously you want to be contacted. Unfortunately not by people who want to sell you stuff just people who want to buy stuff from you?
