RE: SlashDot: "Comcast Gunning for NAT Users"

	Well, if you offer "unlimited" access then, yes, they should be 
allowed to stay on 24x7 if they want to.  Look up "unlimited" in your 
Funk & Wagnalls - my Websters says it means "infinite, boundless, without 
restriction."  That's why ShaysNet only offers "unmetered occasional" 
access.  I suppose it would be asking too much for the FTC to investigate 
the possibility of consumer fraud in offerings of "unlimited" access.
