Blockers?

NotScripts for Chrome or a popup blocker would get around this I'd assume. So there are no other repercussions for the reported abuse? Seems kind of silly.

Not really. The ISP can move you to a network where there is a DNS/Web server that replaces entire webpages with that content. They don't need to do it with scripts or pop-ups. They can put you in a walled garden that isn't really the Internet.
Who know what they do with non HTTP traffic in that situation...

the word missing there is "legally" That goes beyond even comcast and more into the realm of "1st amendment issues"

What "legal" and "1st amendment issues" are being touched on, exactly?

none, but he does not understand that. You pay comcast(or whoever), and are using their private network(last mile), they can pretty much do anything they want to your connection, so long as it does not actively show them what your web browsing sites are(that is still illegal, and requires a warrant). They can send you into a walled garden all the want. Remember, its not comcast or any ISP doing the monitoring, its a third party hired by the CCI(mediasentry), so the ISP is not snooping on your P2P(and its ONLY p2p traffic, like bittorrent) traffic, its mediasentry.
