Either one may or may not be applicable. Depends on your view. "When the country is ruled with a light hand The people are simple. When the country is ruled with severity, The people are cunning." So, I will be cunning in light of this severity. ;) "... the stiff and unbending is the disciple of death. The gentle and yielding is the disciple of life. Thus an army without flexibility never wins a battle. A tree that is unbending is easily broken. The hard and strong will fall. The soft and weak will overcome." I prefer an inclusive peering policy instead of an exclusive one. I think it makes more sense in terms of building a quality network. But then, I don't make money selling high-bandwidth ip transit, so perhaps this is just my view of the peering elephant. -Chris -- \\\|||/// \ StarNet Inc. \ Chris Parker \ ~ ~ / \ WX *is* Wireless! \ Director, Engineering | @ @ | \ http://www.starnetwx.net \ (847) 963-0116 oOo---(_)---oOo--\------------------------------------------------------ \ Wholesale Internet Services - http://www.megapop.net
