Without reading any more of your post, or any of the replies:

- because leadership has a better bandwidth deal
- cuz even though shit in one hand is heavier than hope in the other,
you can't convince anyone

What sucks:

- having to deal with transit from someone who performs no filtering
whatsoever
- dealing with transit who DOESN'T RESPOND TO REQUESTS FOR BGP PEERING
- dealing with transits who don't know what v6 is, or won't respond to
requests (at all), even though the network who is purchasing their
transport has better v6 redundancy than v4.

I am AS14270. BGP with me... its been two years... you've got to have an
engineer who can set up a session by now, no?
