responses might have been quite harsh, on the other hand Randy was
desperately trying to convince me of (frightening) state of things that
could easily be disproven by looking at the routing table (not talking
about the idea itself). Which were also the opposite thing of the last
known OCCAID statement why this issue was happening.

OCCAID technical staff has been informed several times (at least two
times by me through IRC, first on August, 21st 2006) and always responded
that this issue was known (the community migration thing) and would be
fixed on the next maintenance window. I remember several discussions on
a public IRC channel about this issue (also with OCCAID technical staff
present and responding) and, last but not least, SixXS trouble tickets
for reachability issues with US POPs where OCCAID contact has been
claimed (and there is absolutely no reason to doubt them).

Remember that the wild ride of this thread started with accusing
Teleglobe of being the bad bad culprit here.
