Default Revenge on my ISP using P2P filtering

Funny story, and funny idea guys.

I am a customer on Bell Sympatico (Large Canadian ISP). They recently implemented hardware that limits torrents to 30KB or 60KB. When these changes were implemented, even opening a torrent would cause AIM to disconnect, webpages not to load, etc. Diagnosed that it was none of my hardware. Got told by a Bell Sympatico support manager basically to "suck it up".

I wrote a script, that constantly downloads random crap, in this case Ubuntu and CentOS ISO's mainly. I figure it will waste 13 Terabits of bandwidth a month on my plan. It works on 2000/XP/Vista, you just need to create a folder and place wget and my script in it (copy paste script), if anyone else has an evil ISP that needs punishing. Wget is available from http://users.ugent.be/~bpuype/cgi-bi...=wget/wget.exe



Code:
@echo off
:_copy
if exist /download (Echo Directory is present) ELSE (mkdir download)
cd download
goto _download

:_download
wget http://www.digitalfilearchives.com/opensource/ubuntu/ubuntu-releases/dapper/ubuntu-6.06.1-desktop-i386.iso
wget http://www.google.ca
wget http://ftp.usf.edu/pub/centos/5.1/isos/x86_64/CentOS-5.1-x86_64-bin-1of7.iso
wget http://www.yahoo.com
wget http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/ubuntu/releases/dapper/ubuntu-6.06.1-desktop-i386.iso
wget http://www.wikipedia.org
wget http://www.cpuid.com/download/cpu-z-143.zip
cd ..
del /Q /S download
goto _copy

P2P traffic filtering.

Effectively waste bandwidth, making my ISP loose money on me, and helping overload their ancient network.

They could terminate your service. Then what will you do?

Is downloading what you are downloading over and over again though, legal to download?
In which case, you could end up getting in trouble in the end for downloading, and nothing to do with your ISP
