You are lapsing into adoselcent mode (again).  If you have a real, 
proposal for architecture and protocols to replace the Internet protocols, 
send us a pointer to your paper on the subject.  A technical discussion of an
alternate architectural approach would be a good use of this list.  Siimply 
innuendos against TCP is boring, unproductive, and unacceptable.  Cynicism 
is not a
substitute for technical depth.

BTW, don''t forget to tell the ACM that they made a terrible mistake in 
giving the
Turing Award to Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf, in San Francisco last evening.
