Subject: 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.
