Do I represent one (you don't know the answer to that one, > either)? Heck, some days I don't even know if *I* am a business or not. We get to straddle the line between "IT/networking for a $400M/yr organization" and "ISP for 30-80K users" (depending how you count) and a few other things. > sounds like you have a solution looking for a problem.

A case could be made that the lack of such informed consumers is part of the reason we're having the concurrent "block all servers" thread. On the other hand, a forum isn't the solution there. We collectively decided that letting unclued Joe Sixpack get connected for $19.95/mo was a good idea, and we're stuck with it (though if anybody gets a workable way to charge $24.95/mo for a "premier secure" filtered service I'll not fight it unless they flagrantly break truth-in-advertising laws. ;)
