Uh, not if it's buying transit.

Uh, Marty...  the difference between peering and transit is that they have
different definitions.  If you say transit is peering, just not by our
definitions, then you're into 1984 territory.


I'm pretty sure you know that I know the difference between paid transit
and peering. If I were buying transit, I would've had a different
comment. I think we may have a difference though, I don't think
jumping on a big switch and saying "yes" to every peering request is
peering, and I think this is a better discussion at the peering bof
or in person.

Anyhow, I'll be happy to tell you as much as I can (NDA) in
Montreal. I don't see you listed for Dallas.

Is Howard going to find peering in, er, Egypt? It depends what his
value proposition is.
