actually, i think Valdis was alluding to the Paetec fiasco with Monsterhut.
in that particular case, the contract was ok, but Monsterhut lied to the
court about the source of their addresses in order to try and weasel out of
being terminated.

the whole mess took a year or so to wend its way through the NY court
system. bleah.
