Doesn't that assumption (which I'm sure we've all had) predicate itself 
on them *wanting* to stop this traffic? Traffic=$$$$ so why interfere 
with it? They'd have to spend money to prevent money from coming in. 
Doesn't seem to be a good choice from a strictly business standpoint.

Now, if we could penalize them, say treble charges, for each occurrence 
of a ?session? being initiated/transferred/perpetuated, then the cost 
balances would shift and it would be in their business interests to 
change these things.
