Whilst yer Reg commenter tends to be anti-BBC, the anti-ISP sentiment clearly trumps this as you can see from the comments.
I think we can see the first signs of a reverse ferret here: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/04/14/highfield_quits_bbc/ "For Reg readers, Highfield's tenure at the BBC has been most notable for the launch of the iPlayer TV catch-up service. Its second wind is now exposing tricksy ISP marketing, and could force net businesses and consumers to face the fact that bandwidth is currently a finite commodity."
Meanwhile, the comments to this month's Verity Stob article http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/04/14/linux_manual/page2.html demonstrate the dangers of mocking people's religions. I assume there has been some link from a Linux weenie site as many of the commenters don't seem to realise this is a humour column.
