I get that some folks are super into HTML PURITY, but this is one of the lesser offensive things Comcast does imo.

Like... way less offensive to me than DNS hijacking, for instance.

(or the fucking fiber-taps that give the pigs push-button "lawful intercept" functionality without any inconvenience or expense for the ISP)

Furthermore... people can't just hang onto their old-as-shit modems indefinitely as the DOCSIS standard changes/improves over time and providing backwards compatibility isn't always feasible.
