it would be nice if the guy disclosed at the beginning of the article that he works for a think thank that lobbies for the major telcos and hollywood companies who want justification for limiting data usage under a tiered system. why is ars letting organizations like that into their site? i guess when it comes to their ethos money trumps accuracy and integrity.

So disregarding opposing viewpoints would show more integrity? Guy may be a mouthpiece, but some of us like to know what our opponents viewpoints are rather than living in our own little world.

I think the large issue is that the article doesn't disclose for whom this guy works, and that they have a very particular axe to grind w.r.t. consumer rights/protections, and the exploitation thereof.
