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. 82.131.210.162 (talk) 09:49, 26 September 2008 (UTC)[/quote[

How can our webhost get an uplink that won't get taken away from us?

To create an alternate hosting company that doesn't have that copy-pasted cucked TOS about so called "hate-speech" (literally right-wing wrong-think in liberal minds)
TOS that the users agree to, or the guy who is using the hosting service for his website? That's pretty stupid for a cucked host to decide what's said on the website.

End users have to “behave” (read: no misogyny, racism etc) lest the hosting companies delete the site. The site owner needs to agree with those TOS but it is also transitive in the sense that the hosting companies have to agree with a TOS from their bandwidth providers and those ones need to agree to the TOS of the companies that actually own the optical fibres that crisscross the world’s oceans.
