  "When did you stop beating your wife?"

  Sure, real time updates on other people's network problems are less
  despicable than discussions on spam or smurfing.

  However, for those who have subscribed to nanog for more than 3
  years, nanog has traditionally been useful to discuss operational
  issues, where issue is defined as a concept or problem.  

  Real time issues are generally helped little by nanog discussions.


  I'm looking forward to all of the real time network health and T1
  cut updates at next week's NANOG conference.
