He has a point. Remember "Het Net"* as it was before they proxiet to the

* "Het Net", translated as "The Net" was an attempt by the dutch
national telco in the late 90's to come up with a big intranet where
users could dialup, using RFC1918 addresses and visit community and
commercial sites. After a few months, proxy-support to the real internet
was added and even later it was integrated into Planet.nl, a dutch
dsl-isp.
