Comcast Pledges To Keep Traffic Filters Active:

Comcast, in a reverse effort to Verizon’s well-received neutrality plea, has now stated for the record that it will keep filters active as long as music and video sharing continues to occur within its “tube” complex, reports Mike Sachoff of WebProNews today. Indeed, though Comcast for a long while had not gone so far as to promise to keep network-wide activity as clean as possible, the company has now come out onto the proverbial ledge to dub itself a firm supporter of data filters.

This kind of talk always worries me, although on a technical level, traffic shaping makes sense (I do it myself at home).
