Where did this precept come from? Here I thought we were all part of the
"internet" and had more-or-less agreed to abide by its 'rules' [the RFCs
at the least]. This seems like a recipe for chaos.
Can't wait to sign up for an ISP and see a list of protocols that they
choose to ignore, protocols that they intentionally mishandle, etc, and
have EVERY ISP posting a *different* 200 page list... and the sentiment
being not "Hey, there are standards, let's play together" but "their
networks, their rules, screw you". Maybe I've just been brainwashed, but
I'm a conformance and cooperation and standards kind of guy, not an
"everybody rolls his own" one...
