>What we need is a MASSIVE overhaul of national taxation so it doesn't discourage savings and capital investment in the USA. I hate to break this to you, but this will only widen the wealth gap in the US. Not that I disagree with you, but it won't solve the problem of people complaining about the rich.

While this may sound good in ideal circumstances, the reality is that everything has costs, and traffic shaping is -way- cheaper that "building out the network". I worked in IT for a bit during university on campus, and without traffic shaping most HTTP would have been unusable during peak hours. We had two options, try and disallow popular file sharing completely or just limit it, and the best solution for everyone involved was the limiting.
