Someone says over on Talk:PRQ - Wikipedia!
PRQ is not so bulletproof!
This article seems to heroize PRQ, like it was a tree-giant from LoTR. In fact an ISP is easy to kill, you just have to convince its uplink providers to drop them as customers. There are VERY few true TIER1 companies who have fully-owned, unconditional connection to the global net backbone, most ISP and hosting providers rely on Tier2/3/4 telecom companies to lease access to the net.
Just recently the american Intercage Inc. was cut from the net, because of its bandwith reselling to the infamous russian hacker-hosting venture EstHost/EstDomains. Everybody severed contract with Intercage/Atrivo on acceptable use policy violation excuses after Spamhaus.org declared it an enemy of the people. Intercage eventually dropped EstHost as customer and promised in writing to reform its company policies, which finally made United Layer Corp. re-accept them as a customer.
It would be equally easy for USA to cut PRQ from the net, they do have the might to convince uplink providers to drop the contract.
The article should be rewritten in a balanced manner, so that readers do not get false impressions like PRQ are some kinds of axe-wielding vikings of the net, who are totally untouchable. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 09:49, 26 September 2008 (UTC)[/quote[
How can our webhost get an uplink that won't get taken away from us?
