I said I should have paid the bill because our customers should be the top
priority. You then can deal with them in later. I actually did not think
they would shut it off because it was disputed. If you check with the
records the thing I signed with worldcom said I was paying the bills to
get my network up, not because I owed the money.

I don't think so.

I have been in business for 3 years and God has blessed me a lot, but this
is not a nanog topic so I will not go into that.
