Thought I should share.
Last Monday I registered a domain and purchased some web space from one of
larger internet providers. On Tuesday I got an email saying that as part of
their verification exercise they want a scanned copy of one of my IDs and
also a scanned copy of my credit card. Clearly I didn't do it fast enough
for their liking because by Thursday my account was suspended. no second
email/warning etc. I raised all kinda hell but...
I am beginning to resign myself to the reality that access to the internet
at a certain level is a privilege...not a right.
