I think it should be clear to those posting here as a last ditch
effort that they should certainly outline the steps they've already
taken -- basically justifying their post to NANOG: "I tried X, waited
Y, got Z, and now I'm here"

that's definitely one of the reasons *I* think this mailing lists
exists. infact I bet if I wasn't lazy I could find something to that
effect in the charter or site.

SBC/ATT/whatever peering ops was always my absolute favorite to work
with back when I actually worked in a NOC. hopefully that hasn't
changed much in the past year.
