You're violating your ISP's terms of service and avoiding paying for
services, and you're complaining about somebody else violating an RFC?
Your desire to get cheap service (and I'm doing the same thing, but I'm
not expecting people to coddle me) doesn't entitle you to force me to
receive hundreds of spam on the off chance you might want to configure
your SMTP server to bypass your ISP.
