Re: if the owner of MAE-EAST can drop me a note....
In message <[email protected]>, "Louis A. Mamakos" writes: | NAP, in my mind, implies a government designated facility of some | sort. I personally would like to keep that label off of MAE-East.

Again, that's | my personal opinion, and may not even be shared by others here at | UUNET/AlterNet While I have no objection to naming MAE-EAST the D.C. NAP, Louis does make an interesting argument, which, not long ago, I would have found compelling. Now I'm quite corrupted, and suggest perhaps we could compromise by designating MAE-EAST as a private-sector, privately-run touchdown point that the NSF considers "functionally equivalent to the D.C. NAP". I also wouldn't mind anyone pointing out that MAE-EAST predates the whole concept of NAPs by quite a bit, with conclusions to be drawn by whoever cares to make them.
