I haven't seen any traffic on firstname.lastname@example.org in the
month that I've been subscribed, so I don't know if this has
been hashed over already. Perhaps this discussion should be
redirected there, but...
I think it might be useful to have a list that an ISP or other
Net user could check to see if a problem had been _reported_,
or to see the extent of an outage as reported by the users of
the systems in question. I know my helpdesk people would like
to know about unreachable sites before they go having
Joe Luser tear apart his trumpwsk.ini. I realize NANOG is
not the place, but neither is a cacophony like inet-access.
There are only a few vendors using the RA's IPN page...and
outage-discuss is for the discussion of mechanisms to report
such...why not just create a list for the discussion of
outages themselves in the mean time?
