UM, I think that he had bundled AIM and ICQ into the "^%*###@!!! waste of
bandwidth" catagory.  That is if I read the original message
correctly.  Believe it or not, there are a WHOLE bunch of operators who
actually use the fangled device that Alexander Bell patented when we need
to contact someone FAST.  (That is when the ^&*(#'s have valid information
out at PUCK or in ARIN or something at least mirrored  by RADB.)
