The sad part is you knew (or at least should have known, if you honestly believe your opinion os worth wasting over 10,000 people's time) what Randy meant.

Since I started the thread subject, and the phraseology was given by
Bill Woodcock, I'm pretty sure _I_ know what _I_ was talking about.
I was not questioning that you knew what you meant.

And suspected that Randy talking about something else or being otherwise
pedantic (as has been his forte from time to time), so explicitly asked:

# Perhaps you are quibbling ...
So you admit you knew that Randy and you different definitions, making the thread an argument over semantics rather than something operationally relevant.

This thread is about how to do massive moves quickly, without
renumbering and without damaging the routing tables.
The thread might have been.  Your post was not.

Your other posts seemed to be more realistic.  Let's keep the eye on
the operational ball.
Wish I could say the same.

Talking about how to move that many people that quickly isn't really operational, since is not going to happen - even if it were technically possible. But at least it's close. Arguing over semantics is not.
