>From a multi-homed service provider's perspective, I think the whole thing
is great! Almost every call we got today was from a cogent customer who
needed us to help them resolve the issue. It's also a great story when
someone asks us why Cogent is so inexpensive.

It's pretty evident that this has been a clue-free thread... even more 
telling are the "L3 should do this" and the "Cogent should do this"

In the end, there's nothing in this thread that's gonna make one whit of 
difference... those guys will either work it out or they won't (and Cogent 
will buy transit), and life will continue.

Personally, I see a lot of panties in great big wads over this, yet not one 
of the owners of said undergarments can actually *do* anything about this 

I'm not a customer of either of these companies, so I really don't have a 
lot of operational interest in this whole magilla... therefore, let the 
flames begin.
