It seems to me that the ARIN lists -- which I "should" read because they 
directly relate to my job, become unreadable/unusable if you actually 
work at said job, and that is entirely due to people making all sorts of 
unsubstantiated claims about things they know very little about.

If people were to stop

* making legal claims when they aren't lawyers

* making claims about router/switch consumption when they work at an 
outfit too small (or too large) to know much about real life limitations 
of the big (or small) iron in question

* making claims about burden to large/small entities when they work in 
the opposite (or neither)


If we could all stick to discussing things we know something about, this 
list would be a lot more useful.  (and 99% quieter)
