Re: teleport, earthlink

Teleport was a locally owned, community-focused ISP for many many
years before being consumed by the Earthlink corporate-giant. They did
the same thing the year before with Netcom. These big oligarchies are
snapping-up as many of the independent ISPs as they can, and then
eliminating the services they provide and the links/addresses that you
spend years building. (They refuse to provide a link/referral to a new
site. All accounts are renamed with the Earthlink brand.) The first
thing to go is "shell accounts." Followed quickly by mailing-lists,
scripts/CGI, FTP-sites, some newsgroups, and larger disk-quotas.
They're evil and must be stopped.

Note: all "Teleport" addresses (web/ftp/email) are being eliminated: no
thanks to Earthlink scum. Please choose alternates listed below:
