As you should well know, it's fairly difficult to break the internet as a
whole.  Obviously one can break sections of it, and the "break" may
appear differently from one site to another.  Therefore, although some
people may have had sever outages, some of us only lost sections
of the routes to AS 7007 and our email between several of us worked.

Why are so many people (who should know better!) posting "why is the
Internet broken" messages to NANOG?  I mean, it's not like the mail is
going to get delivered until AFTER the problem is fixed!

Kinda reminds me of the individuals who show up in the IETF terminal
room unable to configure TCP/IP on their Win95 laptop.

Come on people, THINK.  E-mail is not an efficient way of discussing
an outage in progress!
