Barbara, I also agree that this is not the proper place for an "education"
to take place.  However, if there are some common misconceptions, I do
think it is important to dispell them along with the facts.  A few people
just fired back comments basically telling people to shutup until they
tried it themselves.  That's not going to further the cause... assuming
you believe in the cause.

I would also like to ask where you think an appropriate forum would be.
Like I said I agree that this isn't the place, but with the lack of a
better place questions are going to arise here.  Maybe there is a place
that ARIN members can be redirected to for more technical type
discussions, and I just don't know about it.

Yes, I already posted the URLs ;)
