Hmmm ... I suppose I would prefer this community not be made an explicit
source of information for a reporter. Implicitly, if reporters must hang
off this thread, they should be able to discern impact from perspective
given here. However, if questions like the one(s) asked below became
"standard" on this thread, then soon the function of the group slants to
something other than a forum to aid (each other) in the proper
"management" of the affairs of Network Operators ... and may morph into
something far less useful.

No intention to "scare" ...

I understand your statement, but I am sure the gentleman below does not.

If you want a story to be done, so that the world can see how something 
like this can impact thousands of businesses, the best bet would be to 
help educate this guy so that he has something to write.

Are, were you trying to scare him off from doing a story?

Personally, I am quote fed up with the issues that the huge providers
and cause, yet never have anyone document it, find out about it, or do 
anything about it. I laud this guys effort for actually trying to do his

job and expose something that needs to be exposed.

I am now putting on my level-3 bullet proof jacket, and will be looking 
over my shoulder for the next 3 NANOGs.
