Maybe as a result server administrators will configure their server in
such a way that connections to compuserve addresses are denied (this is
fairly easy). Thus, Compu$erve can be kept from making money by selling
access to WWW - when at the same time they screw with Web developers
and users through such an incredible move. Grrr.
