IMHO, given that this *IS* an anarchic system, the proper place to get
pissed is in public, i.e. this list or another list. That is how anarchic
systems work! Because everyone is autonomous and makes their own
decisions, it is neccessary that the information required to make those
decisions be fully public.
In this case, new people are continually joining this anarchic system and
the only way they can understand it is to see it in action *IN PUBLIC*.
I'm not just talking about ISP's who are moving to multihoming and BGP,
but also new employees at existing NSP's.
Another characteristic of anarchy is that if you are smart and you know
something, then you get to impart that knowledge however you please and
there is no big brother out there who is going to tell you that this is
conduct unbecoming to a teacher. Well, Sean is imparting knowledge....
