google: ipnmoo
(it's not really hiding)

it's many years old, 
and inspired by the spirit originally intended 
by craig's ipn-list.  (i.e., it wasn't kc's idea)

it's still supported (at the very least)
but i don't consider it a reasonable substitute
for the Right Way.

but then i don't see any other Reasonable Substitutes
for the Right Way (i.e.., beyond nanog-mailinglist)
gaining any traction, so i probably shouldn't
be so hard on it.
(note i moved it from;
i'll get the web page fixed tomorrow)

  It might be worthwhile to post a pointer to this MOO.  There have been
  several posts about it, but no pointers on how to access it.
  I only have very limited experience with MUD's/MOO's/whatever, but I'm
  certainly willing to give it a shot if it helps inter-provider
