    Dear Aditya,

    I am NOW routing the scans through a VPN so that they are not blocked by
    Comcast. When I noticed that something was going on, I was scanning from
    my Cable IP. Once I realized that something seems fishy, I started to
    tunnel all attack traffic, with the reported results.
