If somebody's paying you $n/megabyte for transit/connectivity, what's your
incentive to make them clean up their act and get rid of their P2P filesharing
traffic, spam traffic, and so on?

trouble if all the spam and filesharing suddenly stopped and only legitimate
traffic travelled through their pipes?
