Comcast blocks some Internet traffic

Comcast blocks some Internet traffic - Online World - MSNBC.com

"Comcast's technology kicks in, though not consistently, when one BitTorrent user attempts to share a complete file with another user.

Each PC gets a message invisible to the user that looks like it comes from the other computer, telling it to stop communicating. But neither message originated from the other computer — it comes from Comcast. If it were a telephone conversation, it would be like the operator breaking into the conversation, telling each talker in the voice of the other: 'Sorry, I have to hang up. Good bye.'
"

Hmm, Net Neutrality opponents? Still think we can trust ISP's to regulate themselves?

Comcast apparently doesn't like users of Lotus Domino, either. So, now it's personal.
