I checked out your company, I am not impressed. Decent Privacy policy but Blackhole has a nasty Acceptable use policy.

Allow me to quote:"
Use Black Hole Internet facilities, services or resources in a manner that does not interfere with or disrupt other network users, services or equipment. Such interference or disruption includes, but is not limited to:

Sites that promote any illegal activity or content that may be damaging to Black Hole Internet servers or any other server on the Internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited. Examples of and not limited to of unacceptable content or links include pirated software, "hacker" programs, archives of pirated copyright software, any kind of software or shareware, any illegal audio/video (mp3, illegally recorded samples etc.), any MPEG or MP3 content or streaming (i.e. Real Audio or Real Video) content of any kind.

Pornography and pornographic related merchandising are prohibited on the entire Black Hole Internet network. This includes sites that include links to pornographic content elsewhere.

This effectively eliminates 1/2 or more of the sites on the net, including Slashdot. Not my idea of a good(tm) internet provider.
