My personal philosophy (no, I am not cisco's spokesdroid) is that I'd rather
see folks name names and back up statements with hard data, because that's
a lot easier to deal with than inuendo, whether it's towards one router vendor
or another (cf. the recent bit about Telebit's reordering ACLs).
Specificly, in the area of performance, I tend to want to blow off anyone
who doesn't mention:
configuration of router
type of packets
loss-determination parameters (how did you measure throughput)
