You don't get it, do you? Ross Veach and I have been working in this environment for many years. I was a PI for the NSFNET backbone, and Ross was one of our major collaborators. I forgive you your newbie mentality, but please forgive us that after bringing the Internet over the last ten years from a network research environment to a state that was attractive enough to private industry to get it delivered on a silver plate, that we would at least like the service qualities we worked so hard on achieving. My hope was that you guys would do better than we did, and provide a ubiquitous high quality network (we did high quality, but not ubiquitous). Are you going to get to work and fix it, or continue to screw it up and whine around about the heat in the kitchen? Your choice.
