Along those lines, let me get this straight.  You support someone

Not at all. "People" is the key. The list in question is of servers
used by innocent people. The bad people are someone else's clients.
I don't feel that it's hypocritical to refuse service to an individual
that just cheated a fellow ISP, just like a bank will not issue an
unsecured loan or credit card to someone that cheated another bank.

Until you have to fill out the same amount of paperwork (and have
the same level of penalties for misrepresentation on that paperwork)
to get an account, this can not happen.

And it will _never_ happen for $20/mo accounts.  Too much overhead.

There's a huge difference between a $1000 limit credit card, and
a $10/mo ISP account, wouldn't you say?
