I saw it too. I don't support posting of IRC logs trying to get people
"in trouble" (though lord knows it wouldn't be the first time that has
happened :P), but I also completely disagree with Comcast's position on
this (big shocker, I know).
As one of the people who has spoken out against Comcast's actions the
most vocally, I suppose the original sentiment might very well be
targeted at me. Personally I really don't think that people on the NANOG
list posting about their network issues or actions has ANYTHING to do
with their sponsorship of the NANOG conferences or community, and I
suppose I should be shocked and appalled that it might come down to
these type of threats to silence people who have something negative to
say. I'm a Comcast customer too (50M/10M or 6M/768K DSL at home, gee,
decisions decisions :P), what are they going to do next, shut off my
cable modem for TOS violations? :)
Seriously guys, this is an operator forum and you're running a congested
network, to expect that people are not going to comment on those facts
just because you've put money into NANOG sponsorship is absurd.
