Nate, customers are not OSP savvy. The ones that could be  would be like
you, me, and vin.

Those are few and between.

If I were DHS/FBI/SS? Employee or ex employee involvement. Circa 98
possibly. It is familiar for Boston area transmission.

You have not talked to enough ISPs who have been killed by the ILECs. They
