Packetstream - how does this not violate just about every provider's ToS?

Obviously violates every standard â??donâ??t resell the serviceâ?? clause. ( But
these are also the same TOSes that tell me I canâ??t VPN into the office , so
they can pound sand. :p )

Doing this makes about as much sense as running a TOR exit node to me. Too
much exposure to someone doing something dumb through you that youâ??d be
left holding the bag for.
