Hi Eric and list,

unfortunately there are ISPs and hosters who simply don't get it.  

In some cases they haven't yet managed to get this idea out of their
minds that IP addresses are a scarce resource you should preserve, which
is bad but at least there's hope they'll learn.

In other cases this is simply them making money in a way they have
become rather comfortable with: By making their customers pay for a
resource that they themselves don't actually pay for.  These ISPs will
slowly but continuously lose customers to competitors who have figured
out that they can give their end users a serious benefit without extra
cost---provided that there are such competitors.  If you are stuck in
nowhereland and a single such ISP being your only "choice", then you're
pretty much out of options.
