Not only that, but clearly the service is aimed at making harrassing
calls. Making such calls is illegal, is it not? So here we have a
business who's only line of service is set up to make illegal harrassing
phone calls.

I'd think they would be pretty easy to shut down under the RICO
statutes. Could make a pretty good "criminal enterprise" argument. I
doubt they'd be able to do much to protect anyone if their ISP access
logs are all subpoenaed by some DA.

If ya DO use it, use an anonymous prepaid debit card, and only go to
their server via an anonymous proxy!
