incentive for nodes to propagate transactions #bitcoin

Quote from: AmDD on December 26, 2012, 06:28:38 PM i would say most anyone has "unlimited" internet. I know some people have satellite internet or some type of mobile internet which has a monthly cap but those are select situations. For the most part it doesnt "cost" anything. My father-in-law still uses a dial-up connection. He is limited in monthly bytes sent/received as well. So, while "most anyone" might be an accurate term, there are still plenty of people who are limited in their internet usage. I suppose the answer can be "They shouldn't use bitcoin.", but it is bad information to claim that the relay of transactions doesn't cost anybody anything.
