Dialup is a good throw-away, as is cable.  DSL gets a bit more
interesting, as you have "upscale" ADSL services, like Speakeasy, that
give out static IPs and they tend to attract people who wish to run
servers at home.  Now a list that canned dialup, cable, and most dynamic
IP DSL, that would be just peachy.  But from where I sit, I'm still seeing
lots of junk from other sources, usually overseas, and lately a good deal
of domestic from co-lo providers that don't enforce their AUPs.
