We already get a bill for internet services. It's not complicated to send each email account holder the total quantity of emails sent as part of their monthly bill. Surely that approach should twig a compromised machine owner to action if their box sent 1000's of emails.

Comment intelligent streaming (Score 1) 387

So-called "intelligent streaming" and dropped packet resend from streaming servers is an important feature. Same for switching to a lower bandwidth stream on the fly to mitigate against jerky video playback. Windows Media, Real Helix DNA and QuickTime streaming servers (the latter two also being free) resend dropped packets and some will shift the bandwidth of the stream based on the client's player bandwidth and performance setting on the fly - Flash Streaming servers appear to not currently have this implemented.
