Great idea. All for it.

Someone has to pay up for the need for email servers. My ISP years ago used 1 server for email. Now it's a dozen. But if we take into account most of it is spam, we could go back to 1 server.

If you've seen the rates, 25 cents sends a lot of email. If someone can't pay up for legitimate use...

Not even a cent. As a company that pays way more then any of you for the internet access, and for what is negotiated, we already PAY FOR ACCESS. And if our usage goes over the negotiated price, we PAY FOR THAT TO.

So no, I will drop whoever starts to do that once the contract runs out. If they want to do that, even they ISP's and TELCO's know that there will be a backlash as we the CORP-POR-FREAK-ING-A-TION will screw them so quick by going to other suppliers.

You don't have the infrastructor, you won't get the business.

I do work with larger utilities, you think we would do business with them? Don't think so.

This post comes off pretty angry.. but yah.. at the end the majority of the users have no idea what it really costs.

CNET bought a house!

Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
