My original post to the list contained nothing about any services I
expect with provider xxx. I asked if anybody else saw packet loss or

My follow-up posts contained the reason as to why I was posting this to
the list instead of to my provider, I then took it off-list with 2 other
posters and managed to get more info out of them then out of GBLX. I try
not to bash anybody because I know that doesn't really resolve anything
most of the time.

I agree, it totally slipped my mind to provide that info. I just typed
up a quick post and sent it out.

Im my humble opinion I think this is Nanog content and that is why I
posted it. Most posters opinion of what is and what isn't appropriate
content varies. I love my delete key, if I don't think it's appropriate
I delete it. No harm done to me. 

To each his own I guess. 

Thanks to those that responded.
