Luckily it's been archived for posterity and still available here:
Quoting some text from there:
| National ISP Company is a business class BULK EMAIL INTERNET SERVICE
| PROVIDER, (ISP). Your high volume email ads are sent directly from
| our servers to your recipients.
| Our ONLY business is providing Internet Access for your email sending.
