We all have sale trolls to live with.
Like someone else said, I both agree and disagree.

I agree that the OT thread has probably gone on long enough.

I disagree with your implied assertion that because "[UltraDNS] contributes to NANOG so much" that they deserve a bye. Scummy business practices are scummy business practices. Period. Full-stop. Just because they contribute to an organization doesn't mean that the organization should feel obligated to keep quiet about their misdeeds. It may very well be a "rogue" within their organization causing the problem, but if they're that involved in NANOG then someone is probably being crucified as we speak, and maybe they'll chime in with their side of the story about how they've corrected the problem. If they haven't, then, frankly, this less-than-flattering portrayal of UltraDNS is not entirely undeserved.
