if aol is not worried enough to tell us an address to ping, perhaps
you can see why we prospective pingers are not getting our undies
in a knot.  and, to carry it a step further, one might then infer
why arin has not seen it as a priority.  i suspect this discussion
will change the latter.  dunno what will change the former.
