Is that suppose to be some sort of a "covering their ass" kind of thing if someone gets on an irc server or 4chan or something and pisses someone off, then that pissed off person goes for bandwidth hogging revenge? Its ridiculously stupid but I can see why they would want to do that.

No ISP is going to terminate anyone's service for that. Don't forget, they want your money.

I bet it has something to do with spam.

For instance, if someone were to go around starting threads about Nike shoes on any forum they find and all of these forum sites reported the poster to the ISP.

They want your money, true. But they want to keep your money too. They'll drop you in a heart beat if they start spending more to pay customer service people to follow up on abuse reports than they collect from you each month.

Now you're going from off topic to abuse reports. One has nothing to do with the other.

I can understand them doing that. However, I don't see how they could enforce it if you posted in an "off topic" or "general discussion" section of a forum. The point of those sections is to talk about pretty much anything.

Triple half pound hamburgers with cheese! Three for $3! ***CLICK HERE***

But any way, this is a step in the wrong direction for net neutrality.

Why would they need to enforce it if it was posted in the appropriate area ? :scratchhead:
