Re: UBB, Overages, and malicious users

Also add to that all advertising shown, whether it be static pictures, flash video, etc, count against your cap too. How nice eh?

None of this was argued during the UBB proceedings, despite myself and others talking about it...

I compare it to receiving ad flyers in your mailbox, and having to pay for their delivery... Nobody would ever have that, would they? Yet we get screwed for it on the internet.

web advertisers should subsidize ISP's for delivering their ads.. Much like TV and TV ads.. If advertisers don't want to pay then ads get blocked, everyone wins :P

Advertisers pay web sites so that you get their content for free (in most cases anyway).

The usage by ads is pretty low - a drop in the ocean.
