Yahoo, Google, Microsoft contact?

It's impossible to contact some of these companies; emails sent to role
contacts just go unanswered. I had lots of problems trying to contact one of
the above mentioned ones (about peering) recently. All contact numbers
divert into a telephone drone repeating "we do not have technical support at
this time". Contact with humans is strictly forbidden.

I suppose your hope-of-last-resort is that someone from $Giant_corp sees you
posting on Nanog and replies. 

At the end of the day this is never going to stop. It's much easier posting
to Nanog than spending 4 hours on the phone trying to locate someone with a
clue in one of these big companies.

On the other hand, he *does* have a valid point.  Why *do* we keep seeing
queries for the same networks?
