  Again , someone *CLICKED* to receive this..... If they want to listen
  to 24 hours of "Vivaldi", that is their choice, and they can pay for
  the privilege...

  But, we are not talking UDP here... The user can select to drop
  the transmission, just as they selected to receive it.

  TCP takes *2* to tango.

  Why do we keep viewing content as something that passively  "leaps
out" at the user ?
  
  They *request* it.  

  (For auto-refreshers see earlier suggestion for additional features to
web browsers)

  I mentioned "exceptions" for UDP earlier.... The only real "It just
leaped out" content.
  Charge to *sender*....



   Need that Coffee!!!!!!!!  :}
