"Militant would be DDoSiNg ad servers... "

That would be nasty.

Passive militancy might just be setting things up so the servers can tie up all their lovely bandwidth delivering to Dave Null.

With a 80Mb/s connection that's mostly idle, home users could trivially bring the advertising industry to its knees - and the irony of complaining that website users are "viewing too many adverts" would be simply delicious.... <evilgrin>
