i am outraged, and may comment soon. but right now i'm laughing too hard at all the fucking idiots who willingly give the likes of google and facebook and twitter their telephone number, especially their private, not in phone books, cell phone number.... hahahahahaha.

of course we know that server errors are 500s codes, not 400s.. and that is essentially what this is.. the server (or client's upstream) is taking the action... not the client.

so i propose that the number instead be...

HTTP/1.1 507 SOL

the difference is, the apps use apple's storefront, apple's payment gateway, apple's software and update distribution, apple's ad network, etc, etc, etc. apple is earning their cut.

netflix is ONLY using internet bandwidth that has ALREADY been bought and paid for by them and by their customers. isp's have already made their money on providing the pipes, they don't deserve a penny of netflix revenues, or any 'tax' or 'surcharges' from their customers.
