Goodness me - do you think the same would apply for port 80 or port 443?
Hello this is Webone we are an internet provider - sort of - excpet for web
traffic, internet banking and sending emails - we reserve the right to
remove those services and any other services we feel like.  But we still
provide Internet access.  Honest.

Why should 25 be treated any different to 80, 21, 443 or any of the other
important ones.  Or any at all for that matter.  An ISP should provide the
'road' and leave it up to me to lock my front door.
