Perhaps Netflix expect this to be an ongoing problem with moree ISPs
asking them to pay to deliver (following Bretts lead ;-), so with their
previous transits experience why would they continue to buy from pussies?

Previous events have shown Cognet only use live rounds, so why would they
not take the opportunity to get a bigger gun?

Mutually assured domination. Perhaps one will buy the other sometime.
