Comcast may have agreed to end its practice of using forged TCP reset packets to hinder the P2P traffic of its customers, but the cable provider isn't out of the woods yet. [Front page...]

I suspect that whoever wrote that has no idea about techniques used by totalitarian governments then - especially given that they seem to think that said government is just going to reset a TCP session.
