The spice is no more than thought.  The ISP is considered under the law in the
US the same as a communications company.,   They re specifically exempted from
liability for anything that passes through their systems.

Stop spam on your domain, use our gateway!

| Lets spice this up a bit...
| In the US, companies have the right to protect employees.  For example, lets
say I am walking down
| the hall, and I see my peer browsing porn.  If I take offense, i can sue my
company.  Now mind you
| this is a US law.  The company is obligated to protect me.  Could one assume
the same for the ISP?
|  What if I have a child, and he/she is on a porn page.  Or I start to receive
porn spam.  Could
| one hold their ISP responsible?
| This isnt exactly ports, but content...
