Try wcg.net, I noticed that mail to various things (like noc@wcg.com) 
bounces with MS Exchange errors.

Good luck looking for the cluey goodness in the middle. If I may take a
moment to vent, I think one could best describe them as a collection of
remarkably incompetent people who should never be allowed to run an IP
network. I mean come on, their idea of customer filtering is a
prefix-limit. :)

At least they finally managed to password protect the Cricket site with
traffic graphs for all their peer/backbone/customer circuits which someone
I know found by AXFR'ing wcg.net. Maybe Level 3 will fix them, or at least
shut them down. Either way, an improvement for the internet. :)
