I absolutely love this, but my only gripe is the "no servers" bit.
To be honest, it's for their own protection should it get escalated to the abuse department.
I can think of 2 legit reasons they have the "no server" bit rule.
1) An ISP topology is NOT setup for servers. A legit server has crazy traffic spikes, and can push upwards of 6000 - 1TB traffic on a 100Mbit port. They don't want you saturating their connection.
2) The NOC would be inundated with pointless quality of service tickets because you will get a few people running servers and killing the experience for the rest of the ISP customers.
IMO if you're going to run a legit server, you should just go with a dedicated server/hosting company.--
