More like "let's give it a shot, see if they are on to us. Best case we suceeded, worst case we give a little way and try again. In all likelihood we will end up better off, and at the worst at a regular starting position for the deal/negotiation/kick in the nuts.
Then yes, it is inherently malicious, but of a natural predatory sort.
Isn't malicious, just not very ethical. Having been on the recieving end a few times.. you don't always know it is happening.
But now that we all released some steam, I don't think billing practices is really our expertise here.. although many of us techies negotiate the bandwidth and peering for some very odd reason.
