Re: Keep Alive Response Codes

Unfortunately, the 'critics' of the the 'keepalive' discussion here don't 
seem to understand the problem..
Don't you think that requirement of mandatory keep-alive support in RFC 
will create, in consequence, extremely powerful source of DOS?

Sometimes the server NEEDS to take longer than the very short non-standard 
timeout allowed by these client to decide whether to accept the message or 
Can you give some real world example? 
NB I do not consider any anti-spam system as such example.

I wonder how many system administrators who have set short timeouts have 
actually looked at how many unnecessary re-sends are taking place because 
of it.
Can you precise me what do you consider to be "short timeouts" ?
