I apologize, I'm going off topic.

Actually, I put a lot of stock in what I read in print, and I put 
much greater stock in what I read in print than anything I read on 
the Internet, mailing lists being one of them.

I mean, gee, IEEE, ACM and numerous other scientific magazines and
journals of various subjects are all print based.  The newspaper one 
reads usually every day (not counting the tabloids ;-) is print based.  
Are you saying you don't put a whole lot of stock into them because 
they are in print?  I bet college professors and reporters adore 
you - their integrity is on the line every time they write an article.  

Not having read the article in the Linux magazine, I'm fairly sure 
the person who wrote the article about RIP is being laughed at by 
many communities outside of NANOG, and his integrity is shot.


If I want your opinion, I'll read it in your entrails.
