A particularly dubious service offered by some web hosting companies. Responsible web hosts will close accounts if their users are found to be involved in spam, a pyramid scheme, or other anti-social activities.
Bulletproof hosts specifically target their services towards spammers. They offer a guarantee that they won't terminate the account even if there are reports of spamming.
