If it would have said "The internet revealed - an advertisement for IXPs"
I might have been expecting the thing I got.

I'm saying they don't normally do so, as one might believe when looking at
the movie. Any core router ECMP algorithm that sprays L4 sessions like
that will cause re-ordering which is bad, mkay.
But I'll shut up after this, I'm obviously not jaded enough like you other
people to just swallow this as "advertisement". I expected a correct
factual way of describing how the Internet works including IXPs, not an
IXP advertisement. My expectations were obviously wrong from the response
