intro[edit]

The intro paragraph doesn't really explain what ECN is used for in any sort of terms that would be understandable to the layman. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.132.80.134 (talkcontribs) 6 October 2008

Punctuation[edit]

KBrose,

I'm reverting your edit about punctuation. I'm following the standard academic style, with references appearing before punctuation. This is a perfectly acceptable style.

Additionally, your edit inserts a few commas in places where they are incorrect. Please do not do that. --Jec (talk) 02:22, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Default Linux behavior[edit]

Most Linux distributions disable ECN.

Is that true? I would have guessed that most Linux distributions use the kernel’s default behavior (server-only, not disable). 69.209.48.248 (talk) 09:35, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Indeed AFAIK it is as you said. It used to be disabled before server-mode was introduced. I've removed that sentence in order to not have false claims. (Sharhalakis) 17:21 18 February 2011 (UTC)
