Sure, you have the right so spew them on your page, but I have the right
to not view them if I don't want to see them.  I looked at your page and
no where do I see a mention of the fact I HAVE to view the ad to see the
picture.  I see a request that I do so in the statusbar.

Not arguing that.

More and more frequently there has been this drive for cheap bandwidth to
the homes.  The margins on cablemodem/DSL from what I can tell are VERY
low and caching plays a large part in making it possible from the models
I've ran (We are not yet into broadband, but should be within a month or
3).  Are you willing to pay a premium for uncached service?  I'll surely
provide it to you if you are.  But, when you want 1.5mbs down for $40 a
month, you can pretty much guarntee that I'm going to do whatever I can to
limit the amount of traffic to you that leaves my network.
