    It seems that Mr. Connor never paid attention to Sesame St. when the Count
was on.

    First off, you're responding to two different people as if they were one. 
Secondly David Fokkema has been on the pro-C-R side of the fence.  I do not
recall him ever complaining about bandwidth (unlike one Mr. Connor who
complains about PGP signatures taking up bandwidth).  Third David here was
pointing out what TMDA does do, not making a complaint about it.
