I have no problem with people breaking/mangling their networks any way
they like; I have no problem with AOL special content, etc. People who
blackhole abusers, etc. I have major problems with people mangling their
net and then turning around to claim their net is unmangled. I don't
care how many others have their little fragmented roots, but -as I said
at the start of this crud- if they don't wish to play in the consunsual
reality/delusion that is the big-I Internet, then they need to be
striaght up abaout it.
Honestly, I don't even care if they claim they are providing
"Internet++", "Expanded Internet", etc happy-spin marketing buzz. But
any claims made that such things which are NOT the global-consensus
Internet ARE "the Internet" will be met with refutation, uproarious
laughter, and shunning.
