That particular party needs to have serious ideas and proposals, clean out their ranks (from said nazis, racists and fascists - who have publicly proclaimed their beliefs), and last but not least, have competent people. There's so many videos out there of "politicians" that can't count or have no grasp of their own political agenda. When they get confronted about shit they've done/said they conveniently have collective memory loss (their favourite phrase is "I don't remember"). I'm sad and quite embarrassed that 13% voted for these idiots.

It's both. Regional monopoly on Layer 2. Small monthly fee for subscribers to access the municipal net and a choice of providers with the desired services. Each muni net takes care of building, maintaining and upgrading of the hardware. Providers take care of any other services. My net currently provide Gb connections to end-customers and a variety of services including several IPTV, phone and Internet providers. Most have both package deals and a la carte while some only provide internet access depending on your needs as a customer.

They're right in that the SPAM comes from servers in those countries, but they are most probably not the original source. I would not be surprised if the only thing they are guilty of is insecure and badly maintained servers that someone found and is utilizing for sending SPAM, and to find the real culprit you'd have to analyse the log-files of every server.

Some people claim that the UNIX learning curve is steep, but at least you only have to climb it once.
