Absolutely. If one goes to an all-you-can-eat buffet and has 4 plates of
food, can the restaurant complain to them? Of course not, unless they have a
definition of unlimited I don't know of. If you advertise unlimited access
to a customer then they can use it as much as they want to, by definition.

So you think that dialup users should be allowed to stay online 24/7 for
$20/month on an account advertised as unlimited?
