Since Cogent was depeered couple times before and each time they fairly
quickly setup transit connection (without statement like the one below),
I seem to be getting an impression that they are a lot more angry this
time for whatever reason and it might not be resolved quite as easily.
Or perhaps it would just cost them so much more to fix this time they decided not to? I don't know, but it seems like a possibility.

Plus, define 'quickly'. FT was many days, nearly a week.

Am I wrong to think that this is not quite the game of chicken this time and neither one will provide connection to the other unless a lot and lot of outside pressure is put on them to resolve it?
That was true every time.
