(Really?) Re: Net Neutrality is NOT about being protocol neu Shaping traffic based on bandwidth management needs is one thing.
Providing a bandwidth limit for customer who use more than a certain allotment is tolerable if it's noted in the contract and not applied in a discriminatory way.
Stopping it altogether is denial of service.
Think about the outcome if all ISPs do denial of service based on protocol. Everyone will will start encrypting everyting. What was gained? Nothing.
