I'm *sure* that our connectivity provider will want us to forward us
several million pieces of email a day, just so they can forward it
along, if we decided to not join.  So we have our choices of joining
(probably with a membership fee), letting a provider that probably doesn't
want our load relay our mail (and that will cost *them* money for a mail
server hefty enough to do it), or filter port 25 because we didn't pay...

Looks like a good candidate for getting sued via RICO.  "An offer you can't
refused".  Hmm...
