    I really really hope this is a joke

    This may be moved to the web hosting forum if it belongs there

    I hope this person isn't for real:

    Yes - this seems to be the sort of standard fine print you will find with unlimited bandwidth type providers. But it is important to understand that Acceptable Usage Policies are there to protect the customers who are willing to be reasonable and fair (ie, not acutally use any bandwidth).

    I would have no hessitation signing up for such a service. After all - it is unlimited bandwith we are talking about here.

    His bogus web services page has a 7/10 Google page rank. WTF? Of course, he's probably benefitting from the high page rank of GeoCities.
