I generally don't pay too much attention...  In this case, I hadn't even
seen one.  But, for whatever reason, after the email was composed, I
suddenly thought maybe I should check.  The last thing I wanted to be
responsible was somehow violating a contract or something.  Who knows,
maybe it's in the blasted 9 billion page agreement that management types
sign when we get service from people.

In any case, InterNAP's was a far cry from the kind that you parody
below.  It really only was that one sentence....

"The contents of this email message are confidential and proprietary."

Nevertheless, maybe I should post it anyhow.  It's not like it shows them
in a bad light.  On the contrary, they've been the most in-touch and
seemingly truthful amongst the providers we've had.


It wouldn't be the first time INAP's e-mails have been posted.  But
really it doesn't say anymore than what's already been said on this
list thus far.  Fiber cut, some routing horkage on the West Coast with
gblx and maybe some other providers, people working on it, no ETR,
yadda, yadda, yadda.


Just my $.02, your mileage may vary,  batteries not included, etc....
