An Alltogether Reasonable Response to Traffic Shaping

I thought this comment on Slashdot about how Bell is finally being made to justify their traffic shaping struck me as funny: (previously, Bell argued that they couldn’t explain why they had to do it for “competitive reasons”)

Considering one of their supposed traffic shaping methods is deep packet inspection, the ‘competitive reason’ would be they’d be sued till their arms and legs were bloody stumps and they were just rolling around on the street while angry former customers beat them with shovels. Thus allowing the likes of Rogers to get the upper hand.
