And while those laypeople waste 90% talking about it, of the 100% of the engineers in charge of routing, 70% will be quick to point out how offtopic this sort of a problem is, 90% of that 70% will be quick to point out the question was posted to the wrong list, 20% will have autoresponders answering. Of the remaining 30%, 20% will point to obscure RFC's not being followed as the root of the problem, and the remaining 10% will take a "Not In My Backyard Network" approach and ignore it.
The thread will then offspin with a new topic "Re: This is offtopic (was What happened to my mail)" which will begin a whole new thread filled with a redundancy of "my Juniper is better than your new logo toting Cisco"
