Your only (possibly legit) | complaint is that he does not represent a North American net... No, my complaint is that anyone at is held up on this list as an authority on global Internet routing, especially people who carry around titles like Route Arbiter or IAB member. Any person on this list who claims to be such an authority et id genus omne is not telling the truth. This includes my estimable colleagues here and at the other big five operators, who at least know how routing within their respective ASes works and generally have some knowledge about how various other ASes route in relation to theirs. There is a huge difference between understanding the BGP protocol vs. understanding IP routing as found in the global Internet. Sean.
