Also, let's not forget:  Essentially, the pain that will be felt by
GTE/BBN is disconnecting themselves from many popular and high-volume web
sites, including geocities, hotmail, sony, tripod/lycos,
cbs sportsline, etc.

As for any comments made by GTE/BBN regarding uneven traffic flow, I would
sure as hell hope that is the case.  Surely an HTTP 'GET' request consumes
less bandwidth than the content spewed back.  Then again, GTE/BBN may be
too caught up to realize this, as they could very well be laughing their
asses off all the way to the bank.
