Does anyone else miss the good old days when nanog readers/attendees knew 
why pinging the routers you saw in a traceroute directly was not an 
accurate measurement of anything?

How about when people used diagnostic tools that told you more than "oh 
crap 91ms from *somewhere* on xo to *somewhere* on xo, omgrotfwtflolz the 
square is red and I'm pinging 10 quick post to nanog!"?

Anyone? I think maybe we should all take a moment to hang our heads in 
shame.
