All third party providers want to maintain the present set up.

You're still beating around the bush.

If you're trying to infer a conflict of interest because we take ad money from CLECs (we take ad money from ILECs, too), try harder. Bring evidence.

I have installed many high speed data lines for
»www.nac.net/ They are a CLEC and give *discounted* service to this site.

Our internet connection in the office is a DSL line, although our servers are now located at an ISP (nac.net, thanks to them for our discount bandwidth) and SPEAKEASY.net (a couple of clan servers).

No one is neutral in this mess, true consumers don't have a clue and don't care. It is all special interests.

Re: What is the hidden agenda?

That's your hidden agenda theory? Because NAC.net provides server bandwidth, the entire editorial integrity of the site is compromised?

The truth is, NAC.net has men in suits who sit over me as I write the news, ensuring that I frame things just so...

I cannot believe you've discovered our deep and insidious secret.

I wouldn't say compromised, one sided yes but I would not say compromised.

Ah, ok.

I will take your concerns back to my masters at NAC.net and see how they want me to proceed.
