This is my last post tonight. I'm on EST time and it's late. I have a
question on your last post. If it is all about public accountability,
then why do you think we draw the lines where we do? Why is a commercial
network behind a /30 less accountable than one with a /29? Why are
residential hosts less accountable then commercial hosts? I know they
are loaded questions, but it concerns me when we draw these lines in
policy. This also touches on Leo's posts about IPv6, in that I question
if swips are a viable means of accountability.
Have a good night.

Good to see you again.
Respectfully, the primary reason for SWIP is and has always been
public accountability. Emergency contact is a valuable benefit but
it's no more SWIP's purpose than hunting is the purpose of the second
Find me a process of *public* accountability that beats SWIP and I'll
jump on the ditch-SWIP bandwagon.
