...and anyway, this is NANOG.  not AUSNOG.  Oops, I mean NZNOG.  (or APNOG)

Please show some patience and tolerance, Simon - this is a major
catastrophe.  If you see threads that say "WTC" or "World Trade Center", you
can safely delete those messages.  If it happened in Sydney, I don't think
we'd be asking Geoff Huston and the rest of the Aussie operators to tone it
down.  I've personally been following the threads and find them alternately
amusing, tragic, and educational, but YMMV.

Simon.  The United States of America (as a whole) is under a state of
National Emergency.  Many portions of the nation have states of
communications emergency in effect.  Given the impact of this cowardly act
by savage bastards on the nation that not only invented the net but for
the larger part *IS* the internet (for every 1 site you can name in NZ
that a US citizen would visit on a regular basis, I can name 1000's in the
US that NZ citizens visit on a DAILY basis), I submit that ANY news
related to this event is on-topic and much more impacting to the
operations of the Internet as a whole than arguements about NAT, PMTU,
SPAM, blah blah blah.

friends/family but can we please keep posts to this list on-topic?

General news about the recent attacks you can get from your TV or news
related web sites.

The only stuff here should be here is how it specificly affects Internet
links, sites and traffic.
