Yeah, right. I suspect you're more even-tempered than I am. I'm not
even an Eastlink user and I'm pretty grumpy about it. :-) Network

Apparently (supeficial scroot) it's not uniformly distributed but this
guy  says that Bell and Rogers are doing it. If Bell is doing it,
it's only a matter of time for Aliant, no?
It's not clear to me what the "opt-out" does but it's
allegedly volatile and reverts. One of these guys  suggests a
bash scrip <- cron to re-opt him out every minute or similar.
I know a tech at Eatslink. I'll have to ask him what he's hearing.
