The red hand

This sounds like it'll help people catch Comcast, At&a, Ect redhanded

I wonder does it have a way to export the data it colects for use in showing the proof to people or just run test and look?

And just what makes you think Comcrap et al. is quaking in their boots? The first time they were caught redhanded, all they received was a slap on the wrist. Sure, they also generated a fair amount of negative PR, but as Comcrap continues to demonstrate time after time, they really don't give 2 shits about bad PR because they'll just hire some journalistic schnook like Dan Roth from a reputable publication to write a feel good article to give weak minded subscribers the warm fuzzies.

The vast majority of users could CURRENTLY care less.
Those that are in the industry - techs/geeks/devlopers and those that run the networks and/or pay for it are the ones that will care.

I've got a lot of hotels on my network with firewalls that do traffic shaping. Do I get a bad rap when one of their guests runs this behind their network where the customer (hotel)is shaping traffic and not the ISP?

While admitting that you have a problem is usually the first step to resolving that problem, I would say that KNOWING you have a problem is the first step to admitting it. The vast majority of users CURRENTLY have no idea why some things work better or faster than others on their broadband connection. Here's to hoping that these tools can/will spread knowledge that things could be better...

i don't see how this matters, so what if a user runs it, they are there for a short time.. Do you think anyone cares?
