Well, before I returned to PAIX, I was CTO of MFN. MFN had bought Abovenet,
and I learnt to respect strong peering policies. Abovenet's peering policy
was, and as far as I know still is, very "strong". It's strongly _open_,
which means it's different from the purported C&W policy being discussed here
this week. But while different it is still "strong".
I think what you were looking to say above is that "*closed* peering policies
are not good for the Internet." Probably noone will *publically* disagree
with such sentiments. Not on nanog, anyway.
