Re: BBN Peering issues

Yep.  

What comes with this is that Exodus and the rest of the world have the 
freedom to inform our customers and the public in general of (1) what we
ascertain the situation to be, (2) how we analyze it, and (3) what we
recommend that customers of both Exodus and BBN do in response.

Whether the rest of you like it or not.
