[snip] I have no problem with people breaking/mangling their networks any way they like; I have no problem with AOL special content, etc. People who blackhole abusers, etc. I have major problems with people mangling their net and then turning around to claim their net is unmangled. I don't care how many others have their little fragmented roots, but -as I said at the start of this crud- if they don't wish to play in the consunsual reality/delusion that is the big-I Internet, then they need to be striaght up abaout it. Honestly, I don't even care if they claim they are providing "Internet++", "Expanded Internet", etc happy-spin marketing buzz. But any claims made that such things which are NOT the global-consensus Internet ARE "the Internet" will be met with refutation, uproarious laughter, and shunning.
