What choice did he have? IMHO, given that this *IS* an anarchic system, the proper place to get pissed is in public, i.e. this list or another list. That is how anarchic systems work! Because everyone is autonomous and makes their own decisions, it is neccessary that the information required to make those decisions be fully public. In this case, new people are continually joining this anarchic system and the only way they can understand it is to see it in action *IN PUBLIC*. I'm not just talking about ISP's who are moving to multihoming and BGP, but also new employees at existing NSP's. Another characteristic of anarchy is that if you are smart and you know something, then you get to impart that knowledge however you please and there is no big brother out there who is going to tell you that this is conduct unbecoming to a teacher. Well, Sean is imparting knowledge.... Michael Dillon Voice: +1-604-546-8022 Memra Software Inc. Fax: +1-604-542-4130 http://www.memra.com E-mail: [email protected]
