It's a nice thought, but I'd really appeciate it if my web content didn't get screwed with on the way down to me from web sites.
I became annoyed by this because this code inserts "Shift+R to improve the quality of this image..." on a desktop machine when you hover over it with your mouse. I'm not so bothered by the compressed images, but this pop-up is very intrusive.
With Firefox it is easy to get rid of by putting a Filter in the AdBlocker extension with the 126.96.36.199... address in it. Not sure how to do this with IE.
I'm pretty sure this has happened in just the past several weeks.
Thanks for this post - I found it via Google, and hadn't considered that Sprint was doing this. I had noticed it more and more lately because I was using the Sprint network much more than usual lately.
I thought I had a bad virus or variant of DNS switcher or something, I even had my router blocking traffic to 188.8.131.52 and could not seem to stop the connections and desipite all the negative scans I was about to start changing all my passwords for my dozens of various accounts and contacting my financial institutions. So you definitely saved me much time. If you are ever n Virginia I owe you a beer or a fresh-squeezed limeaid.
