It is simply a message.  The computer was not accessed in an
unauthorized manner.  Otherwise, it would be illegal to send e-mail to
someone without prior authorization...  There are lots of people who
would love to and have tried to prosecute regular e-mail spam, and you
think something much easier to block would stand up in court when
regular spam is difficult (but possible is some cases) to prosecute?
