I'm going to stay on the NANOG list anyway

Whoops!  I'm still coming to grips with multihoming.  According to your thinking, my many years on the NANOG mailing list were wrong and you tell me I should leave. 

I don't think I can allow you to do that, Andrew. 

Paul Vixie, Dillon, Bush, and others have given many examples of appropriate and concise direction giving to newby questioners.  Follow their lead, please.

I agree, but I question if NANOG is the appropriate medium for such help.  I
tend to (maybe mistakenly) assume a working knowledge of basic multihoming
concepts is essentially a prerequisite for active participation on the NANOG
mailing list.
