Yeah, it's pretty obvious from the start. I'd like to see the VoIP-system with those requirements...

I just think these cases should be made public to at least slow these guys down, just in case someone else is less cluefull :) If these really happen all the time in the big world, this list may not be the right place, but just something Google can find. This is not first case we have come across requests like this, but still not so common in the Finnish hosting scene.

With Kind Regards,
