RE: [Latest draft of Internet regulation bill]

Thinking of "services" in terms of /etc/services will get you nowhere
with this. It's like using the term "best effort" to a lawyer.

It's all about context.

Have you sent a letter to your congressional representative
saying this? Of course an explanation of the technical terms
"80" and "25" would be in order as well.

Complaints on the NANOG list carry no weight in the Congress.
