Especially considering the fact that Amazon is just a bit selective about  
their peers.  Though, the size of our border probably had a lot to do with  
the fact that we didn’t get a response the first time when we requested  
peering for our 10s of megabits of traffic, we none the less didn’t get a  
response the first time we tried.   Not even a “go away until you have some  
traffic of significance.”

In the end, we had to implore a back channel to get a peering session set up.
