I would like them to be informed that the "www.list.org" web-server
  appears to be behind a broken firewall or router that discards packets
  from people using TCP_ECN extension....  I.e. linux 2.4 or 2.6
  kernel's default configuration.  Some *BSD variants include ECN
  with a 'fallback' mechanism so that such users can still connect,
  just ..slowly.. in this circumstance.

Many linux distributions turn this of using sysctl at boot-time by
  default, to work around the [decreasing number] of broken sites....

But still, this doesn't excuse that server at  [www.list.org,
  mail.zork.org, strongbadia.list.org, list.org,]
  still breaks communication with TCP_ECN clients...
