Please take the "how do I man whois" thread, the "we got screwed over by our incompetant dsl provider" thread, the "can someone help me find some bits in wisconsin" thread, and the "I can't figure out how noc@ or peering@ works" thread and CEASE AND DESIST while there is still SOME hope of content making this list worthy of reading. If you have a complaint about your DSL provider, TELL IT TO SOMEONE WHO CARES, or maybe (*gasp* here's a thought) vote with your wallet. Please, can we just STOP replying to these threads? I know 5 other people made this request when they first started, but perhaps they were too nice about it because it is still going on. When your nanog-reading experience consists of 95% D)elete something is wrong. -- Richard A Steenbergen <email@example.com> http://www.e-gerbil.net/ras PGP Key ID: 0x138EA177 (67 29 D7 BC E8 18 3E DA B2 46 B3 D8 14 36 FE B6)
