It's Not Torrent Blocking, It's A Delay!

Possibly one of the most enlightening pieces on suspicions of Comcast filtering peer to peer traffic that I have seen in a very long time. Think this is wild, it gets even stranger. Now to be fair, this is hardly an unbiased source. Posting this stuff is obviously demonstrating that they are as frustrated with Comcast policies as I am. By no means mistake this post as absolute fact though, merely another person’s experience.

My own experience, I have also noticed issues with trying to download LEGAL torrents for various Linux distributions I may be doing a review on. It’s frustrating and unless Comcast is ready to admit whether or not they HONESTLY are limiting my ability to legally download Linux distributions via Bittorrent, I will continue to be suspicious and remain open to possible ISP alternatives who can at least with a straight face, admit that they only have so much network to go around. At least I can respect that kind of honesty.

    I wish all these jokers would quit their whining and start “putting their money where their mouths are.” This clown threatens over and over to cancel his Comcast account, but he won’t do it because he knows Comcast is dirt cheap compared to what it would cost him to get a T-3 or better run to his house. And meanwhile, he feels “the rest of us” are supposed support his bandwith hogging – either by suffering reduced performance on our Comcast connections, or by having to pay more for service so Comcast can upgrade their gear to provide the bandwith needed for him to run his torrents all day long.
