Really?  I always thought that higher profits and buying transit were mutually exclusive relative to higher profits and 
openly peering.

So what you are saying is that one stands to make more by paying upstreams for bit swapping?  How's that work?

If the argument is that the opex required for maintaining peering relationships is too expensive relative to the direct 
and indirect cost of buying bandwidth, I love to be edumacated on how that math actually works because it makes 
absolutely no sense to me.
