inserted a blurb and a link to a biased website

Biased website? When I go to the original site of the image (http://www.bomford.net/worcestershire/images/DavidJeffreyBomfordBirthCertDoc65.jpg), I get a 404 response. Totally unbiased (except in favor of the ISP's bottom line), although it does fall below average in informativity. When I go to front door (http://www.bomford.net/), it's immediately obvious to anyone with any experience getting websites hosted on the cheap that they exceeded their bandwidth.

And of course, we know why, don't we?

Are you paying attention at all? The link, which was inserted deep in the family tree on one of the site pages and occurred before before the account was suspended, was to the Washington Independent, a biased US website, as referenced in my OP. Once the change had been made, the front door and all doors were still fully functional. Only later was the account suspended.

So again, the ISP managers saw that the obscure site, which had not been updated in 2+ years, was crashing because of increased traffic. They did not shut the site down or contact the site admins but rather modified one obscure portion of one page on the site explaining the situation while linking to a biased US website and leaving the entire site and "front door" fully functional. Later, they suspended the account because it was not a premium account. Is that right? Seriously?
