Re: FW: Behind the scenes...

The following should be attributed to Jim Fleming:

I personally think it looks more anarcho-feudal.  No
official hierarchy, except volunteers doing what they 
can.  Some of them even make money.

> republic than the democratic system in the U.S. that

Uh, no offense, but the U.S. I live in is a republic, 
not a democracy.

So, anyway, thanks for a very amusing post.  

On a more related note, if I recall correctly, Sprint
has lossened its prefix filtering, but Agis and somebody
else have tightened theirs.  Did we ever get details, 
or was I napping that week?
