Hi Rob,

SCA is the "Society for Creative Announcements", which is all about
how to creatively announce your BGP prefixes in ways that get around
filters, prefix limits, congested peering links, Backdoor Santa specials,
and other such hindrances to the free flow of packets in the directions
you really want them to go.

I can completely understand how the original poster could have
gotten the two lists mixed up.  Some days, I can hardly tell them
apart myself.


PS--for the humour-impaired, here is your requisite wink:  ;)
