I have Comcast residential service and I've been pulling down torrents all weekend (Ubuntu v7.10, etc.), with no problems. I don't think that Comcast is blocking torrent downloads, I think they are blocking a zillion Comcast customers from serving torrents to the rest of the world. It's a network operations thing... why should Comcast provide a fat pipe for the rest of the world to benefit from? Just my $.02. -Jim P.
