Anti-Spam vs freedom of speech.

A nice article was posted on the first amendment center website telling us about a student being sued after using Michigan State University's email to send 'unsollicited', 'bulk' email.

Now, the question raised by the website is: where's the frontier between Spam Filtering and limitations to freedom of speech?

If we think a little about it, the question is wide:
Freedom of speech should allow anyone to tell anyone else whatever he believes to be relevant.
Spam filtering is here to protect personal (and professional) emails from unsolicited information sent by third party.

The line is thin...
