Clearly you can see the article was published by T1R in their Daily T1R
report: http://www.t1r.com/

(listed under "The Daily T1R Headlines")

If you subscribe to the Daily T1R, you can find Dan's report issued today.

I think Dan overstepped here.  Richard has made comments of a de-peering
notice received by nLayer, not an actual de-peering occurrence.

AFAIK, the only two networks in recent weeks that have been de-peered are WV
Fiber and LimeLight.  WV was de-peered a couple on September 17th and
LimeLight was de-peered yesterday.
