So, are you assigning address space, and aggregating all the participants
below you, and forcing folks to use you as their sole point of connectivity?
If you are, then the fact that you do not have all ISPs in Tucson under you
and advertising a single CIDR block on their behalf proves my point about
forcing a business model.
If you are not, then my comment about how we are trying to solve a different
problem than the routing table also proves my other point.
