    v147 v148  
    8181 * Comcast's [http://www.comcast.net/terms/use/ Acceptable Use Policy] for '''residential''' customers says no servers or proxies under "Technical Restrictions" (2009-08-10 tip from Scott Bennett).
    8282 * [http://www.100tb.com/ 100tb.com] (Softlayer) allows Tor exits, abuse needs to be addressed within 24 hours. Despite this "policy", my experience was bad. They were very understanding at first when the exit was just made and got about 5 DMCA notices, and replied explaining Tor. A few days later, I got forwarded about 30 DMCAs, and few from Spamcop (even though common mail ports were blocked); as usual, I replied that it's entirely because of Tor, and that I have no pirated content or viruses on my box. Apparently they got fed up with the constant DMCAs, and replied with "More will need to be done to block this. We will not tolerate open abuse of our network (DMCAs and SPAM via a "Tor Exit Node"). This type of service is prone to abuse and tarnishes not only our reputation but your reputation with us. If action is not taken to help prevent this going forward we will be forced to block access to the server". At this point, I set it as a "middleman" instead of an exit, in hopes that it would stop the flow of DMCA notices. Nope, they disabled the interface. I have at this point stopped Tor on the 100tb box, and do not know what to do now. There is no way at all to block all P2P, and 100tb refuses to acknowledge this. They make claims "Tor is ALL RIGHT on 100tb boxes!", but then go and screw you over when you get DMCA notices (it's a when, not an if. Running a Tor exit WILL produce DMCA notices). I highly suggest avoiding these people at 100tb/Hosting Services, Inc./midphase if you are seriously considering running a stable Tor exit.
     83 * [http://www.m5hosting.com/ M5 Hosting] does not explicitly forbid Tor in their AUP, but after operating an exit node for 3 weeks and receiving three DMCA complaints, their abuse department communicated, "Whereas Tor exit nodes facilitate unaccountable actions by anonymous users and those actions regularly expose [M5] to undue risk as well as oversight costs and unknowable legal expenses, Tor exit nodes will not be permitted on M5's network" because "just responding to the abuse complaints costs [them] money and it costs money to [their] upstream providers and increase[s] [their] risks of incurring legal defense expenses".
