Easier and cheaper? Can't think of any... This method nicely gets  
around the need to tap and process numerous (10) gigabit links, which  
isn't particularly easy and certainly not all that cheap.

Interestingly, nobody has mentioned on the list what the offending  
content is yet. Or why this would even remotely be a good idea. I  
would think that if the content in question is legal, ISPs and the  
government shouldn't touch it, and if it isn't, law enforcement  
should do something about it.
