- ---------------------------------
I apologize if I wasn't clear in my original e-mail. The outages mailing
list is being run by me (virendra rode) with the only motive to help the
network operator community. Gadi & Randy were nice enough to offer help
w/ bandwidth and hosting this mailing list.

I would really appreciate if folks can show some professionalism & keep
their personal (non-operational) attacks  off list. You are not being
productive nor helping with the process. Email me directly and I will
assist in resolving your questions and concerns.

As far as the outages mailing list goes, this list will remain general
Internet backbone style outage-centric mailing list and I welcome
constructive criticism.

Ideally (if I have better luck) I would like to get providers to direct
outage notices to this list. All that really matters is that we have a
central pace where network operators (nanog, sanog, isp-routing,
cisco-nsp, etc) can post notice (backbone-types) of problems so that
people are aware of them and can offer an informed answer.

I would really appreciate everyones co-operation.

Thanks for listening.
