Re: Consumer Advocates would be intentionally disruptive

Not to mention that nothing productive comes from those types of discussions and the "consumer advocates" will leave the table pouting because they can't have their way on a network that doesn't belong to them.

The alleged illegality of some of the content that's distributed through P2P is really irrelevant unless you're a member of some of the trade groups that may be realizing losses. IMO, this is a bigger push to control P2P types of applications and what goes on the ISP's networks. What this most likely means is the demise of P2P. The question is, what will replace it and how will ISPs deal with the new threat?

I read this as "My (P2P) way, or the highway" AKA Stifling competiton, development, innovation, privacy, neutrality, et. al...
If I had more than two thumbs, they'd all be down at Concast over this.
