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.

Good luck finding an ISP that will let you run, by default, an email server.


Easy. My ISP does that.

Yeah, because *servers* are the main problem with botnets and spam, not desktops...
The ONLY reason ISPs have this kind of bogus "no servers" restriction is so they can charge you a premium for a "business connection", which is usually the exact same connection and bandwidth. Any other reason they might give is pure bullshit.
