And yet, they still let the spam through.  Its a mail packet.  How is
this different?  I don't mind filtering myself, but I'd like to be the
one doing it.  Let me choose.

I guess I should point out that although some of us consider the
internet a right, I consider it a privilege and I'll take my hard
earned dollars to where they can buy the right services for the
privilege I can get.

Taking my service away from comcast means that they have one less
person providing them with residual income.  Eventually, enoug people
will take their hard earned money elsewhere and they'll have to do
something.  That's what this is about!
