First showed up on NANOG 7 hours ago, but it was a fun read. 

Clearly the article has little connection with reality. I am not an
unpaid volunteer and neither were most or all of those involved. The
idea that just because the traffic does not originate or terminate on my
net means that working on solving a problem is altruism is pretty silly.

And NANOG was not really involved though several of those that were are
active in NANOG.
