Judge denies porn spammers' request for a new trial

Do you know what's worse than spam? Porn spam. Lots and lots of porn spam. Recently in the news, a couple of convicted porn spammers tried to file for an acquittal or a new trial. See News.com's Police Blotter report: "Porn spammers' guilty verdict upheld."

According to the story:Police Blotter: Porn spammer

On June 25, a federal jury found Jeffrey Kilbride and James Schaffer guilty of two counts of Can-Spam violations, two counts of obscenity, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Defendants do not dispute that they transmitted the [not including the names because I love my job] images in interstate commerce, for sale, and with knowledge that they were sexually explicit. The only question at trial, therefore, was whether the images are obscene.

I'm not usually at a loss for words, but wow.... The judge, who obviously had an opinion about whether the images were obscene, denied their request.
