Any business is likely to kick out customers that cost them much more
than they are being paid (under relevant contract terms of course).
Since his blog was being hosted for free, it isn't surprising that
Akamai told him they couldn't do that anymore.

It certainly isn't fair to expect Akamai (and their paying customers) to
deal with that.
