Re: "Protocol Agnostic" means EVERYTHING

By saying "protocol agnostic", that means they will target ALL types of traffic, not just BT!
Yes, based on this press release, Comcast users can expect to see a wider swath of traffic shaping. I'm sure everyone will be happy now that Comcast won't be picking on the innocent P2P protocols...
It actually IS a good thing. When they start slowing down ALL traffic, more folks than just the P2P users will start bitching. Hence more calls for network neutrality.

I doubt that. How will screwing with a majority of people's "Internet experience" drive them to ask for network neutrality? If anything, I would think that this will drive a majority of people to say "f@*% the hogs, fix my connection" and you'll have a majority of customers asking for P2P throttling.
