Why are ISPs having so much trouble authenticating identity? You have to have a credit card or a checking account to get an account. Couldn't they then insist on a person going through a waiting period before their account is activated? Or is it just too easy to provide fraudulent credit cards and drivers licenses? Is this unreasonable?

Thoughts anyone?
