This is a good point too. Comcast has refused to define what exactly their
limits are so assuming all the content is legal, how does a law abiding
citizen know when he is over his limits?

I didn't know that you doing something illegal with your application made
it OK to block my use of it.

Also, what _is_ my "fair share of bandwidth"?


P.S. I am making absolutely no judgement on whether block is good or bad.
Just wondering how other people rationalize doing, or not doing, these
types of things.
