Ran across more then one in the Idaho/Oregon/Washington State area that 
told me it was "too hard" for them to do BGP with customers, or my 
favorite, that it would cost over 1k USD for setup, and 500 USD a month 
to do a BGP session with them from our rack in their data center.

Some are either just lazy or incompetent.
