What do you mean?!  I'm writing an email right now to my 
service provider, demanding that I get *only* porn.  I 
want all pr0n, all the time.  No need to wast bandwidth
on this smtp garbage, or any other http-type hooey, for
that matter.

I want my OPoIP (only porn over IP)!  I want it secured,
even!  Encrypted porn with an SLA I can wave SLA about if 
anything else slips through like pesky news or children's
pages or something icky.

Are you telling me my provider reserves the right to 
refuse me this service?  <sniff>
