A followup to what I *just* posted. This literally just in over the wire:

Subject: AT&T & NevadaHosting Issue

Organization: AT&T Worldnet


AT&T has reviewed the document posted at  That document represents a
revision to AT&T's standard contract that was entered into by a sales
representative without proper authorization and is in conflict with AT&T's
anti-spamming policies.  The agreement has been terminated and the customer
has been disconnected.  It is not AT&T's policy or practice to enter into
such agreements or to allow spam related activities.  In fact, AT&T's
policy, as set forth in its Acceptable Use Policy
(, is quite the opposite.

We apologize for the delay in addressing this issue publicly.

I guess the anti-spam public pressure system still works. Thank goodness.
