C2 has decided to drop the ISP side of the business and go into
cryptography software. They are not doing a good job of weaning their
costumers away from the service. I've had a frustrating time with them as
well, and half the staff there I count as personal friends.

I'm pretty certain that their decision has nothing to do with SPA or any
other outside pressures. They simply changed their minds about waht kind of
business they're in.
