Hmm, I'm not sure, it might be better if ISPs indeed did not do any of the above things.  Just
give each user a quota of packets to send and receive and let them get on with it.

Manifestly, all the measures ISPs are currently taking to block port 25 or cut off zombie PCs
are ineffective in stopping spam, so it would be no great loss if they went back to just
pushing bits.

Just think about how bad it would become if they did nothing (Shudder!)
