No. The only way to offer a even remotly reliable view on whether or

speak for the majority of the list when I say that making nanog into a
public bitch forum is the last thing we want. Take your gripes elsewhere.

Have you even taken the time to read the charter/aup for nanog? The first
rule in the aup states that:
Discussion will focus on Internet operational and technical
issues as described in the charter of NANOG.
Not whether or not you think Exodus sucks.
