What is up with internet providing companies

I’ve spent the last 2 hours trying to get this to work how I want, a job that if i had direct access to the machine in any form would have taken 10 mintues. From 1&1’s bastardised admin tools to BT blocking my site for some reason it’s been a nightmare. Whilst I can understand why they make this stuff hard to do look at 123-reg, its a shitty form ok, but it’s direct access to the DNS registration you’ve bought, and at the end of the day, you’ve paid for the domain, why can’t you access the proper DNS record information.
And BT, don’t even. Seriously, what is with blocking sites at random… I can’t even connect with FTP or SFTP it’s ridiculous, that and they put their own fake 404 response, so if they want to block a website from you, they just throw their 404 page at you and there aint a thing you can do about it… except tunnel through an external computer of course, which is what I’m doing now.

Oh, I was going to post some lovely pictures of disassembling the GameCube but BT fucked that one in the ass, going to sleep now instead.
