[ NNSquad ] U. of Colorado: Comcast now resetting wide range of TCP traffic

 The University of Colorado at Boulder is reporting that Comcast has
shifted from inserting "forged" reset packets solely to disrupt P2P
traffic, to algorithms that can disrupt a wide range of traffic,
apparently irrespective of protocol, including potentially e-mail
and Web browsing.  

If verified, this suggests that instead of developing a sensible
traffic management policy, Comcast may have simply extended their
disruptive reset strategy more generally. 

First-hand reports or other additional info on this are welcome.  

The U. of C. report is at:
