        The point is that 'usage' is supposed to be 'what you use', not what
somebody else uses. 'My' traffic is the traffic I want, not the traffic you
try to give me that I don't want.

An Internet-connected line is like an 800 phone line. You get connected, you "advertise" your presence, you have no control over who calls, you pay the bill for the incoming calls. That's just *how it is*.
