I would sue him to kingdom come
That's just throwing money away because they're completely within their rights and judges toss frivolous lawsuits in the trash.
Blogetery agreed to the TOS/AUP when they set up shop with BurstNet, no surprises here, much like all the rest of us also have agreed to similar terms with our hosting.
For some funny reason people think those contracts and AUP apply to everyone but them.
Just remember, we're only talking about a SERVER here, how about the entire hosting company being taken offline for hosting spammers or malware like McColo (US), PROXIEZ-NET (Russia), Pirate Bay (Sweden), UkrTeleGroup (Ukraine), Real Host (Latvia), Atrivo (US), ColoCall (Ukraine) and 3FNetc (US).
Both Atrivo and McColo were taken offline by their upstream providers and 3FN was shut down by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
Last year there was a Secret Service raid on ColoCall in the Ukraine [usenetshack.com], all servers removed:
19 November 2009. At about 10 o'clock in the morning, Ukrainian Security Service officers raided our data centre in Dnipropetrovsk in relation to an ongoing enquiry with one of our clients, "Fregat". During the raid, hundreds of units of equipment owned by our company and our clients were taken for forensics.
So this is far from an isolated incident and far from just being US-based, it happens all over the world.
Do nothing illegal and host in squeaky clean data centers and there's nothing to fear :)
