Jeezus Fscking Xrist. Do what every other adult does: get a

This is _so_ against AUP, and I can make a very good argument
that it is stealing.
One of the Prohibited Activities is
* Use the Services on more than a single computer, unless
  otherwise authorized by CoxCom.
I really don't think that Cox (or Charter, or BellSouth, for
that matter) would look kindly upon a dozen seperate households
sharing one line.

The relevant paragraph in the article focuses on "you can't tell
us we can't broadcast over 802.11b". Well, the ISP doesn't really
_care_ what the "medium of exchange" is. They'd be just as pissed
if I ran cat5 from my switch to my neighbors.
