There's any number of people who have a television running, almost
non-stop, whether they're really paying attention to it or not.  They
also tend to be the people who phone you at awkward times, and still
keep their TV running full blast in the background so you've got a

"pardon? pardon? im having trouble heareing you" :) they soon get the message, and yeah its horribly annoying, i had one wanka once who wouldnt i asked him to wait, put him on hold, wlaked into hte DC, and deliberately tuned the radio station off, so he was hearing whitenoise :D sadly so was everyone else, but it was worth it.

headache within a few minutes.  Though I tend to agree about the needing
a real life retort to that.  ;-)


I used to run the radio most of the day (and the TV off!), but that was
a real radio, and electricity costs are far less than data costs.
People do expect to be able to do the same sort of thing, internet-wise.

yeah, typical radio streams at 3 kB/s that is not going to hurt anyone or thing tho.
