No, no, no.  Pesky newbies: haven't you read news.announce.newisps?

You've forgotten the "100% local call coverage" debate (with the
optional subdebate of who had it first) which comes between those
two.  *Then* it's "dynamic vs static IP addresses", followed by
"transatlantic capacity".

If we're playing Adams's rule, flaming about who owns whom is
permitted at any time.
