So you believe the ISP should censor our mail, or at least be 
given the opportunity?  You believe that "Hobbyists and Freaks" 
especially need for their mail to be subject to screening, but 
corporations don't?

They do spam filtering.  What's next?  Adding advertisements?  
Harvesting the addresses and selling them to spammers?  
Allowing certain spam to get through, for a price?  Discarding

Discarding your own mail as spam because of your political 

It is worth putting up with some spam to get a free, uncensored,
