FW: Sprint v. Cogent, some clarity & facts

There was nothing in my post advocating free transit or peering. I
merely pointed out that peering only without downstream propagation was
a technical error, based on the proper implementation of the protocols
as designed.

All the discussion of practicality and politics are implementation
failures: the first because of crappy routers, the second because of the
established player issue you called out.

We've all had enough of crappy networks causing unreachability.
