It would be great to hear back at how you guys make out with those sites.
I really have a strong suspicion that Google is already throttling traffic (at least has a mechanism in place; if need be) to individuals or companies as an Anti-trust countermeasure. I think question number 1 by any competent official in the anti-trust case is:
"Why should we allow you to determine what 65% of the Internet sees?" Throttling is the only come back they have.
