Why not get to the root of the problem and talk to your ISP or the network provider of the server(s) in question?
Unfortunately, we often do not have that kind of control over our network connections, and the administrators for networks/servers located hundreds, or even thousands, of miles away are often impossible to reach. That's assuming that they even speak English.
Instead of continually shifting the blame to some other - nebulous - third party, why not just step up and help us do what we need to do.
In the time it has taken you to reply to all these postings, defending your position and pointing to everyone else's problems
, you could have implemented the feature and added two or three dot-releases as well.
As many posters above have already said, you must be fortunate to have your internet connection connected directly to a low-latency gigabit Internet backbone. Likewise, your renown within the industry appears to allow you first-name access to even the most irascible server and ISP providers.
Unfortunately, the rest of us are mere mortals. We do not have God-like access or influence within the industry. As a consequence, we mere mortals are forced to deal with what we have, as pitiful as it may be.
So, instead of spending all this time and energy dodging a problem that clearly needs to be addressed, just step-up and provide us with a solution that will help solve this problem.
What say ye?
