And when you go to figure out why that IP wont ping through Cogent on 
your exchange, and start troubleshooting but can't get any answers 
as to why things are bust... 

[ Clearly now an operational issue for NANOG. ] 

Purposely breaking routing and not being able to talk about why is going to 
set many orgs at odds with their basic operational charters. I expect that 
a paid service will work when it's provided, including help debugging their end. 

This is slightly different from a service provider, ostensibly you can 
go elsewhere to get service - but when you are a member of a nonprofit *IX 
(as we are with TorIX), things get a lot more complex. 

I imagine contract lawyers are going to be all over this.
