This has **nothing** to do with us. At All.
Correction: Other than the these two things:
a) Paul Vixie is a cofounder, chairman and CEO of MAPS LLC and at same
time CTO of MFN (parent of above.net)
Dave is the Executive Director of MAPS. He is no longer at MFN. Hasn't
been for a quite a while.

I am never anything BUT painfully honest. There is nothing disingenuous
about this at all. There is *no* relationship between the management
of MAPS and that of above.net, MFN, PAIX or any other entity.
Don't get me wrong, I like MAPS and I think ORBS/MAPS flamewars are
silly. (And certainly hoping I'm not starting one now). But a little

that there's absolutely nothing in common between Above/MFN and MAPS.
Please check your facts before you question someone's integrity.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled flame war.
