Re: my only gripe

said by ArrayList:

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.

Everything you said is valid, but a single server should never be able to degrade service on any ISP.
