Done. Yes, when I mentioned the T-word, I was not refering to the RBL. The
RBL is voluntary and allows people to deny others access to THEIR OWN
machines. It has nothing to do with people trying to deny others access to
machines the perpetrators do NOT own - that is what I take issue with.

I see absolutely no call for you to be advocating denial of service attacks
anywhere - and ESPECIALLY not on NANOG, where everyone *knows better anyhow*.

The knife cuts both ways.

I hope no one using an account, or an account at my upstream,
ever even comes close to getting you upset because it sounds like in a
situation like that, you would advocate a DoS attack against the network
involved. I'm sorry, but I am not retracting my statement that that IS
terrorism, and there is absolutely no call for it, and if you commit a DoS
attack you deserve whatever sanctions you get hit with, either by your
upstream or the law.



Anyone who spams me will be subject to torture by Jake,
my killer attack hedgehog, and/or Lizzy and Junior, my man-eating iguanas.
