Comcast blocks some Internet traffic

By PETER SVENSSON, AP Technology Writer
Yahoo news

NEW YORK - Comcast Corp. actively interferes with attempts by some of its high-speed Internet subscribers to share files online, a move that runs counter to the tradition of treating all types of Net traffic equally.

The interference, which The Associated Press confirmed through nationwide tests, is the most drastic example yet of data discrimination by a U.S. Internet service provider. It involves company computers masquerading as those of its users.

Last week it was reported that the CEO of Yahoo would be recalled before congress for lying under oath about ratting out pro democracy dissident who published news of the Red oppression of the movement....

This week Yahoo reports on Comcast censoring our internet at will.... Hard for me to have a dog in this fight, just glad the're still fighting....sigh

Sometimes the best you can hope for is that your enemies keep fighting each other and ignoring you.

If they must fall upon someone, let them fall upon each other. Yahoo sure isn't going to tell us about Yahoo, but Google is only to happy to...really anymore, that's about all the protection we get. They fear nothing except the loss of our dollars.
