I ran a tor exit on them and it got shut down on the 4th abuse claim, i have no idea how those 2 exits relays are still going,

I would recommend against them personally, and raised in the spring good-bad isps needs to be updated alot of ones on their are out of date

Best advice is do your own research and talk to the companies and don't sign up for long contracts

If a complaint is received, the Abuse department will take appropriate action and notify you.'.

I explained that there were things that I could do to reduce potential abuse, like limiting the exit policy, but that there was always still potential for abuse.
