    82  * Charter: "Bandwidth Sharing", or indeed any type of "Server" is forbidden on Charter. They appear to be imposing an artificial bandwidth limit is well. -- ManaUser
    8382 * []. Running Tor was fine until Undernet mailed a complaint which falsely claimed Tor was somehow a "botnet". This made a [ very rude person at Ezzi] send a mail which falsely claimed the Tor servers were hacked and "It appears whoever caused this hacked the servers by brute forcing SSH logins and uploading a fake httpd binary and launching it.". This person kept on insisting the servers were hacked after being politely informed that Undernet had confused Tor traffic with a "botnet" and that the servers where not compromised in any way, so it's kind of hard to tell if the person was troublesome because the person did not understand what Tor is or if this person at Ezzi generally just imagines things and think they are part of reality. But it is clear that most ezzi customers [ become ex-customers after meeting this known-to-be-rude tech].
    8483 * [ LayeredTech] are a server hosting company located in Texas.  I ran a server for six months without any issues, but then someone used the Tor server to exploit a PHP vulnerability.  Explaining the goals of Tor to LayeredTech resulted in it being made clear that I was responsible for any and all abuse through my IP address. Shortly after this they ordered me to shutdown Tor. -- Steve_Crook
