There's no good/bad ISP in my opinion, there're just ISs who forbid exit nodes by their terms and conditions or not.
All others is in the eye of the beholder.

I do have a nifty example to illustrate it, a response of a german ISP (language is german, no translation needed !):

	Guten Tag Herr Förster,

	laut Deutschem Recht sind Tor Server im Moment nicht verboten.
	Aus diesem Grund sind Tor Server bei uns auch nicht verboten.
	Aus Erfahrung raten wir jedoch vom Betrieb eines Tor Exit Node ab.
	Leider wird oft ueber Tor Server Content verbreitet welcher laut Deutschem Recht
	nicht erlaubt ist. Dies kann Ermittlungen von Behoerden nach sich ziehen.

Do you see it ?

The welcome contains the german unlaut "ö" - the Text itself not, all german umlauts arre replaced with the appropriate "ae", "oe" and "ue". Among many technical explanations, could this mean by any chance, that the writers opinion differ from the (got from outside ?) official response ?
