I’m not with Comcast…

…but apparently they sent RSTs both ways. And I wouldn’t put it past my ISP to forcibly reset Bittorrent connections either. So I’ve told my firewall to drop BIttorrent TCP packets with the RST bit set. The question is, when will ISPs understand the two fundamentals of the situation, viz. 1) I’ve paid for my bandwidth and I’m entitled to use it, 2) Bittorrent traffic isn’t all about teenagers downloading copyrighted material – what about Linux distributions, game patches, etc?
