I know of two:, who, when I questioned their desire to censor
the adult materials by putting user passwords on access instead of just
allowing in our IP blocks, told me "we don't want your business". And, who we use as a customer, and are very pleased with. $100 a
month has cleared us from having to deal with the headaches we had running
our own news server (mainly in keeping the RAID running cool and fast, not
with NT).
