RE: [ga] [ADMIN] Suspension of William Walsh for mass postings
We all agreed, at the time, for the rate of 5 postings per 24-hour period.
The question of start-stop time gateways is irrelevent to rate measurement.
Velocity is ... velocity and intervals are intervals. Anything else is
dicing frog fur...a useless excersize. Note that I am past midnight, local
time, yet I am probably in violation of the rate limit. Although, I have no
idea about how far.
I also noted, and apologized, last Sunday, for my probable infraction. I
also apologize for this one. Also for Monday, I really wasn't aware of my
volume. This brings another point home to me, due to other issues, not
related to anything ICANN, I need to reduce my participation in these
These messages take time and thought to write properly. I really don't have
it. I'm still composing a nasty-gram to my new (clueless) upstream provider
(SpeakEasy.NET) who can't seem to get reverse IP entries into their
IN-ADDR.ARPA records (RFC2317). That task's been on my desk for a week now.
The folks, on NANOG, will probably welcome my absence as well. There are
serious issues regarding CIDR, BGP4 /19 prefix filtering, and multi-homing
that they really need to answer. Actually it's an ICANN/ASO issue, but I
have no input there. ICANN really should be looking into a serious problem
there (moreso than DNS) because I really think that it is a policy issue.
[how many here know that over 100,000 businesses have ben cut off the

I just spent 45 minutes, on this message, when I really should be trying to
get a few Oracle databases up (without correct ARPA records) and setting up
my Inprise Application Server (EJB) whilst trying to figure out why my
JDataStore has licensing problems (after I set both the license s/n and key
properly), debug a few JSP pages, and generally get Java in the house
(whilst getting DreamWeaver to cooperate with Jbuilder4).
Let's just say that I'm a tad busy, if Sotiris wants to push for my
suspension then let it happen. I could use the time elsewhere.
Again, I apologize for exceeding the rate limit. I assure you, I wont do it
