>Has anyone here dealt with ACSI? They call themselves a "backbone"

ACSI has a horrendous spam problem due to Dakotacom and a few other
leased line spam factories.  Now that AGIS appears slowly to be
cleaning up their act, ACSI is poised to become the NSP that everyone
hates and filters out.  I am trying to get in touch with people there
who can do something about it, and I have no reason yet to believe
that they're anything other than underinformed, but the spam problem
is very real and very well known.  See my spam summary page to see what they've sent lately
to addresses on my tiny home network.

Until they get that problem under control, I would be very cautious
about depending on them for connections to the rest of the net.
