You’ve got subpoenas! A California dude, a lawyer no doubt, is suing AOL for including ads along with his email. He calls them "annoying, confusing, intrusive and misleading."

Dr. Frank Cecchini says his email should be free of ads because he pays AOL $25 a month. Cecchini is looking to establish a class action lawsuit because that’s where the big bucks can be extracted.

Apparently, Cecchini can’t read very well according to who says "all paying AOL subscribers can opt out of sending ads in the footers of their e-mails."
