This is a repost from my post at Open Source Community. Thought it was important enough to post here as well.
Even if you accept the argument that all P2P traffic is inherently evil, and that Comcast has the right to disrupt it in order to put a stop to copyright infringement, Comcast’s traffic-shaping efforts have apparently extended beyond the realm of P2P and into good old enterprise groupware. Kevin Kanarski, who works as a Lotus Notes messaging engineer, noticed some strange behavior with Lotus Notes when hooked up to a Comcast connection last month.
Hmmm, I really would like to protest these actions by my ISP, Comcast, but there is no other provider that offers near the speed they do in my area. Gotta love monopolies.
