What doesn't help is the ISPs out there who are complete dolts and first don't verify reports and second false alarm. They'll cut a user off on a single complaint without any evidence or verification. Or worse they have some automated system that false alarms without any way to verify you're cleaned up. And if you can't get online you can't get cleaned up anyway. Catch 22.

I don't really see how any ISP will terminate an account for just one complaint, after all, it's losing money..

We have seen a few good examples of pretty big ISP's who said here how quarantine works for them.

Got an example on how ISP's are kicking users out?
