Actually the "tier 1"'s aren't responsible for most of it, but they allow
it from their customers. The ones responsible are the tier 2's, the DSL
providers, and those just large enough to make an impact on the internet
but just small and stupid enough to not make it a good one.

It would be nice if some of the tier 1's could put some pressure on their
customers. Does anyone actually want to get off their butts and do this?
