Encrypt the content if you will, but if you try to obfuscate the
fact that you are DOING P2P, in violation of a contract you made
with your ISP, you are being dishonest. And if you announce from
the start your intent to be dishonest, then there can never be
a truce, much less a mutually beneficial agreement. And you will
be exactly the kind of customer whom we will be glad to send
packing. We like doing business honestly, with honest people.
