Yes, I know that to some who don't operate networks for a living the 
analogy might seem "over the top." But it's not. Just as a bomb is 
destructive and can hurt innocent people, P2P is destructive to networks
and hurts innocent users. And, yes, there can be harm to life and limb, 
because people rely on VoIP to serve as their telephone. I worry, day 
and night, that if I don't provide absolutely reliable service someone 
will be hurt and that I will be held liable. This is no joking matter;
networks MUST be reliable.
