You are incorrectly assigning a motive to my action. If I was trying to 
outsmart anyone, I would like to think I'd have done a better job of it.

My motive was to aid the mirrors who sync from me (I believe that there 
are some official mirrors that do so, since I have the DVD images and lots 
of bandwidth).

If the CentOS maintainers wish me to refrain from such action in the 
future, I will of course do so.
