It's possible that routing failures at OASIS or OASIS' ISP would discriminate against some individuals disproportionately. But it strikes me that the more subscriber-specific the outage is, the closer a router failure would have to be to that subscriber (ie. further from OASIS/their ISP, hence less under their control). > Though, without proof we're just pulling it out of, well, the ether. Yup. Cheers, Miles
