Interesting social phenomenon...

Why are so many people (who should know better!) posting "why is the
Internet broken" messages to NANOG? I mean, it's not like the mail is
going to get delivered until AFTER the problem is fixed!

Kinda reminds me of the individuals who show up in the IETF terminal
room unable to configure TCP/IP on their Win95 laptop.

Come on people, THINK. E-mail is not an efficient way of discussing
an outage in progress!

But it is great if you need to explain stuff to connected clients. Just
forward a message from nanog...

  It's not so important when the FYI type messages get delivered ?
  Because they are just that, FYI.
