Sean, I don't undertstand why Sprint is so insistant that we drop their service. Is your response to a legitimate complaint, that you are not delivering what you sold, to tell a customer to go away? You have an interesting viewpoint on this. Perhaps inet-access needs to be brought up to speed on this discussion. All I have ever asked for is that you *respect your customers*, and *honor their legitimate announcements*. Let me ask this question -- if MCSNet DOES drop Sprint, will you accept our netblock CIDR annoucnements at other locations (say, for example, at the MAE), or are you going to try to screw 5,000 of our customers and leave any prefix which we got from you unreachable from Sprint? And if the answer is that you WILL, then may I ask why you DID NOT DO SO during your recent partial backbone collapse this last week? See, that's the same question I've been asking about this filtering all along. You are, effectively, holding MCSNet AND ALL OUR CUSTOMERS hostage. This will not happen without lots of comment and impact on Sprintlink. If you make that pledge, implement it, and I can TEST IT AND PROVE you are and will do so, then this issue is closed. Otherwise its not. Your policy was developed AFTER we get involved with you, and we were never told nor were we offered to be grandfathered. And, to top it off, your firm has been one of the LOUDEST whiners about ISPs not getting their addresses directly from the NIC -- where no such hostage-taking would have been effective. If you think I'm questioning your motives, you're absolutely right. -- -- Karl Denninger ([email protected])| MCSNet - The Finest Internet Connectivity Modem: [+1 312 248-0900] | (shell, PPP, SLIP, leased) in Chicagoland Voice: [+1 312 248-8649] | 7 POPs online through Chicago, all 28.8 Fax: [+1 312 248-9865] | Email to "[email protected]" for more information ISDN: Surf at Smokin' Speed | WWW: http://www.mcs.net, gopher: gopher.mcs.net
