[squid-users] Delay pool with large negative numbers

I have configured delay pools for a client that delays access to a few
sites, including youtube and facebook.
It seems to work for some clients, and has significantly reduced link
congestion. However, some clients seem to be unaffected by the delay pools.

The output to squidclient mgr:delay is as follows:

Sending HTTP request ... done.

89:12000 223:12000 55:12000 93:12000

Memory Used: 1496 bytes

I have searched for answers and some do mention that sometimes the current
bytes in the pool shoudl be negative, but a low negative like -1 or -6. To
me it seems that the delay pools are beeing ignored...

Thanks for any help.
