two horrifying further thoughts occurred to me during my mid-afternoon
o if someone hacked into isps' routers they could announce the root
servers and just imagine the ensuing chaos. so, should we take down
all bgp-speaking routers.
i bet you think not. so maybe this is not the issue, but security and
o if someone hacked orbs and blocked the merit smtp host, we could all
be deprived of the critical operational information we get from this
mailing list <gasp!>.
but we should back off and not usurp bill's job as the bad-but-cute idea
