I agree.  I think that NANOG is in no way the appropriate forum for
discussion of a particular candidate.  I do, however, feel that those in
our industry need to be more politically active, especially with regard to
legislation such as this.  In fact, Mr. Simpson may have a good idea about
the formation of ISP political lobby, but NANOG shouldn't be it.
