Kiltak, I read somewhere yesterday that Comcast is only filtering bittorrent uploads while keeping the downloads open for high speed access. This is totally in keeping with their policy about running servers on their network. Lotus 1352 may be filtered inbound, but not outbound.

While you are partly right, don't forget that Bittorrent is used for a lot of other things than trading copyrighted material. - WOW uses the bittorrent protocol to push their updates. - Lots of Linux Distribution are distributed through it. -Lotus Notes / Domino gets crippled because Comcast filters port 1352 traffic.. And this is only the tip of the iceberg.. Don't forget that bittorrent was initially made to improve quality of service... sure, some people abuse it, but in a lot of case, the protocol has tremendously improved the ways corporation distribute content.
