Bollocks.  AOL has no particular legal requirement to deliver email to
anyone, and does so to any extent, only because they wish to.  Email is
not paper mail and so is not subject to the normal legalities that
relate to interfering with or impeding the delivery of mail.

Look at your ToS and service agreement.

No need to.  There's no offense.
