Should ISPs control what applications their customers can run?

frankly and truly, i would be satisfied if isp's wouldn't run outlook/exchange
in their noc/abuse departments, so that they could safely accept mime-mail
rather than bouncing it as their only means of keeping themselves virus-free.

i love it when mime shows up here.  mh-e just has no idea what to do with a
"pif" or "exe" file.  the whole concept of having to run "mime defang" at the
gateway because an abuse desk worker or backbone engineer has a fragile user
agent is completely ridiculous and there is no possible explaination for it.
(if this is your situation then quit, or fire somebody, as appropriate.)
