Re: Open can of worms
The issue is trust factor with Comcast. What they are doing here is deciding what traffic they deem is harmful or suspect at the packet destination IP, making an assumption of what's installed on your machine, then performing an injection attack against your machine's web traffic from sites that have no connection to the issue at all.
Once this practice is established and accepted when does the IP address list start coming from the MPAA or any other faux consortium?
Perhaps that's just to tin foil hat, but I don't feel it's outside the realm of seeing the slippery slope that it is.
I do believe it's good to try to get rid of the bots. I don't like their implementation and feel it should be opt-in or at the very least.. opt out.
