AhHa!  the light dawns and Bill sees the error of his ways... and seeking
to banish the curse of ASSUMPTION, he points out to John that the statement;
"Your ... connection goes down ... you've filtered any backup route"
presuposes certain preexiting conditions.

	Please note Johns presumption of the singular.
	I expect the environment Christian is in may not
	suffer the presumption of singularity, at least 
	where such filtering is in place.
