A. As clearly shown above your misquote, I said "pay extra for large downloads" not your mis-quote. Was that deliberate attempt to
misrepresent, or did you actually think I said that?

B. Now do some more math and multiply that by the cost per megabte or per minute that some internet subscribers have to pay. The
latter download costs 50% more in *money*.

C. *I* never said anything even remotely resembling "hours more", in pretense or otherwise. Don't put words in my mouth. If
you're responding to someone else, respond to *them*, not me.
