They did post to NANOG when they performed the aforementioned

Seeing as we've all seen people complaining about them not doing this,
when they obviously did, I don't see how it would've helped everyone had
they posted to NANOG before the July 31 cutoff.  

I'm not saying that not posting to NANOG was a "good" idea (well, ok, it
was stupid) but it seems it wouldn't have helped quite a few.

It is a natural law. Physics tells us that for every action, there must be an
equal and opposite reaction. They hate us, we hate them, they hate us back and
so, here we are, victims of mathematics.
