Google Fiber Bans Servers

The language isn't very different from most other ISPs, but the EFF's disappointment is that Google used to the be a company against such arbitrary rules. The other reason is that the word "server" hasn't been clearly defined. Does that mean when you use a peer-to-peer service such as BitTorrent, when your computer is both a client and server? What about using Skype or Spotify?

EFF instead says that the rules exist not to really ban servers but instead to ban users and service they see as "troublemakers." That's why the definition is broad and unfair to users.
