I understood what you said.  I just disagree.
To summerize the essence of my previous posts, if a mirror decides to 
allow multiple connexions, apparently they have no problems with that, 
as they could readily deny such connexions.
So how to you think that you have the right to deny their decision to 
allow multiple connexions on _their_ site ?
If you have a problem with multiple connexions on _your_ site, you have 
every right -- and probably should -- restrict such access to your site, 
in whatever way you wish.  And on-one has the right to dictate to you 
how to run your site.
Hopefully my point is now clear.

Regards :)
