Google "In the net neutrality vision of the world, broadband providers simply deliver packets as they are paid to do. When it was just a set of online services, Google happened to fall on the side of citizens and used to advocate against broadband companies controlling the pipes. Now that it’s an ISP itself, Google is becoming a net neutrality hypocrite." This is why trusting companies - any company - is simply a bad idea. Companies don't care about you, and those that say they do are liars.

"Our Terms of Service prohibit running a server. However, use of applications such as multi-player gaming, video-conferencing, home security and others which may include server capabilities but are being used for legal and non-commercial purposes are acceptable and encouraged. "

Looks pretty clear to me.

Not clear enough; servers like e.g. your own cloud-server, SSH-server, e-mail server, web-server, music-streaming server and the likes are clearly not about multiplayer gaming, not video-conferencing, not exactly home security and they do not include "server capabilities" as a part of providing other functionality -- they are servers and that's their primary role --, so are such servers allowed or disallowed? Who knows, they're not saying! All they're saying is that they're reserving themselves the ability to shut down all such activities and until they prove me wrong I'll assume the worst.

Good luck finding an ISP that will let you run, by default, an email server. Mine requires me to fill out a form on their website.

Oh, they're sooooo EVIL!
