karl and paul, expostulating

I don't have a hair trigger on this gun -- it takes quite a while for me to
decide that someone can't/won't come around on their own. And when I block
things I do it with as long a prefix as possible, since I am not trying to
penalize anybody and I want all "cooperative" portions of the net to reach me.

What does it take to get removed from the list? Is there some kind of
an appeal process?

Anyway, if the access to f.root-servers.net is not blocked to anyone,
then the whole discussion has come to its end, I guess.

Thanks for asking, even though your implicatory tone is very damaging to you.
