Hum. I take ~4 calls each day for things that are some other
ISPs problem. Folks are -politely- told that the issues
are either with their ISP or someone upstream of their ISP.
When they get pushy, I offer them a service contract. 99.999%
(hey Sean, there are your five 9's!) of them then choose to
work with thier ISPs. I suspect that you have more than enough
clue to never have to give me a call, but if you do, be prepared
to be re-directed... :)
