For those of us that do not offer Bitcoin as a method of payment for this segment of the hosting industry, have you considered implementing that in the future or have you completely ruled it out, and why? I'm curious how you proactively prevent Bitcoin fraud?

If you have a customer who is not breaking any rules, hosts the correct kind of content and keeps paying you but has signed up with the wrong name and address, are they still a good customer? I believe that's the right question.
Once paid by BitCoin the transaction is not reversible, so the money is yours. That's the good thing.
But the payment source does not back up the names and addresses in your database. That's the one bad thing.
If you follow up any BitCoin customers by phoning them, then I think you've done all you can.
We accept BitCoin, but haven't had many takers, we had had a few of enquiries about it and as it doesn't cost anything to provide, we set it up.
██ UnixGuru High Performance, Low Contention, Hosting
██ Elastic Sites (HIgh Powered Hosting Accounts) with 1 to 20 CPU Cores, 2 to 40GB of RAM. (Power of a VPS without the hassle)
██ Shared, Reseller, VPS, Dedicated & More available
Still a tricky arena. There is a lot of noise about bit coin before you set it up and one you do you realize there are very few too few clients that actually use it. I still its still a gamble that could easily go either way.
