I dunno..., Why would I mention underage anything? Well.. It was a passing comment, but to your intial mention of it.
The terms of service in NO way limit what websites you can visit. Visit naughty sites at will Just don't be copying the images and emailing
them to your underage friends.
Indeed. Cable one is a private business. So was Prodigy, Compuserve and so are AOL and Time Werner/Roadrunner. They've all tried going a few steps
beyond reasonable and decent for control of their customers in net access. They've all been sued for it...and if I'm not mistaken, they've all lost to
various levels in court because of that attitude.
I'm not sure what you mean by websites. I hadn't even mentioned their IP restrictions because almost every provider in the world has that as boiler
plate language. It just means you can't install Apache server software in your home P.C. and then use a dynamic IP service to insure the public can
still access your web hosting, by a consumer provider, despite dynamic IP's being assigned in the first place. I wouldn't say I've used such things
for short testing of design projects ...
.. it might be against my providers TOS. lol....but I do see their point on THAT part. Sharing this
connection for bandwidth across my loop, and larger community if it gets too far out of hand? I well appreciate that measure. Some idiots would start
the next Ipage or Godaddy if allowed the opportunity to try .... 100% swamping the bandwidth for a whole community in the process.
It's that indecent nonsense. They aren't the Justice Potter with a time machine to another era of the Supreme Court and "I can't define it...but know
it when I see it..." doesn't wash. They'll learn that little fact by another Judge in another courtroom, the moment someone gets sideways of their
policy and decides not to put up with vague limitations of service like that.
