Unfortunately for the geeks among us, there's no easy way to number from zero in Roman numerals.... > ii.

There's a *reason* why 18 USC 2511 has specific exemptions for network quality testing: http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/2511.html > iv. Thou shall give access to any authority figure with or without > warrants So you'll give access to an authority figure *without* a warrant, even though this clashes with the intent, if not the letter, of (ii)? (Or was "without warrants" veiled reference to a National Security Letter? :) > iii. Thou shall not allow evil traffic to pass through ones routes > viii. Thou shall not null route thy neighbor And if the two of these come into conflict, what do you do? Moral absolutism may be nice, but it won't save you any on your car insurance or help you run a production network. If you're selling volume-charged transit, it gets even murkier.... This stuff is harder than it looks....
