Speaking on Deep Background, the Press Secretary whispered:


Shouldn't customers that purchase IP services from an ISP use the ISPs 
mail server as a smart host for outbound mail? 

applying that standard just how large do you have to get before 
you "graduate" to running your own smtp server. "I'm sorry we won't accept 
mail from you because you're not an lir?"

Yea! I think the registry should run the mail server. That way,
there's just 3 or 4 nationwide. Makes it easier for Ashcroft
and RIAA, to boot.

And we all know how well NSI does on complex things...
