	Well, if you offer "unlimited" access then, yes, they should be 
allowed to stay on 24x7 if they want to.  Look up "unlimited" in your 
Funk & Wagnalls - my Websters says it means "infinite, boundless, without 
restriction."  That's why ShaysNet only offers "unmetered occasional" 
access.  I suppose it would be asking too much for the FTC to investigate 
the possibility of consumer fraud in offerings of "unlimited" access.
