Did I say I had problem ? I am glad you agree that  making statement about all
the ISPs in India w/o checking facts about even the ISP in discussion was
bold. I got no problem with that :)

My concern is that when someone makes such statement (with such a
confiedence) on wildly popular mailing list like this one, LOT of people
(LOT != ALL) take this as FACT (ignoring the AFAIK part of the statement)
This is how misinformation spreads.
