I know and I would still argue that they are tantamount to extortion.

There is no coercion involved, so, by definition, it can't be called 'extortion'.  If you don't like the AUP, don't 
sign up for the service - simple as that.

Hyperbole isn't generally helpful.

In an oligopoly situation, that's hardly a valid set of choices and is tantamount to extortion.

Yeah, I thought so, too, but apparently the FCC and the SEC hasn't
seen it that way for the past 20 years. Go figure.  :-)
