Even if she were knowleagable she still has to remain absolutely impartial
and judge the case on the basis of the facts presented to her by the
parties and not what she may have read in the papers or magazines or
letters from irate Spamcop members.
PS If you do feel tempted to flame the judge just be careful you do not stray
into a Section 1505 Obstruction of Justice
"Whoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening
letter or communication influences, obstructs, or impedes or
endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede the due and proper
administration of the law under which any pending proceeding is
being had before any department or agency of the United States, or
the due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any
inquiry or investigation is being had by either House, or any
committee of either House or any joint committee of the Congress -
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five
years, or both."
