Perhaps because FNSI is a decent size network with a significant number of 
peering connections and BGP speaking customers.  This was the first notice I 
have seen that they will be aquired by Cogent.

It was forwarded by not as propoganda but as a heads-up to the people who will 
be affected.  It was not sent by FNSI to Nanog but by a customer of FNSI (us).

And this was any more off topic than 90% of the other garbage on this list 
lately?
