Am I being filtered?

Huh? I just clicked a link in google reader leading to a /. article discussing whether it's time to reassess the US's war on drugs and Firefox threw up a 'this connection was reset' error.. and now it works. Is Orcon testing Deep Packet Inspection, aka Australia's recently doomed 'Clean Feed'? They are owned by a state-owned company, which would make them a prime contender for a testing ISP.

The Link in question

According to:

they do implement DPI, but to classify traffic as Default (mostly web), Other, and P2P. Then in peak periods, the traffic is shaped, with P2P getting the short end of the stick.

They also say they're pro net neutrality.

Also, I found it interesting that they say P2P now accounts for 25% of traffic, down from 50%, with streaming video another 25%.
