[ih] why did CC happen at all?

If it's necessary to post publicly, then I'll do so.

I'd like to second Paul Vixie's call for moderation. Herr Bosau, if 
your concerns have nothing to do with internet history, beyond 
asserting that you know more than the folks who were involved in 
designing internet protocols, and demanding that they admit that they 
were wrong, then you should take your insults and your attempts to 
derail the internet-history discussion list *somewhere else*.

Also, you owe Paul Vixie an apology, and more apologies to the others 
on this list who have shown, in my opinion, remarkable tolerance of 
your anger, insults, and distractions from the topics of the mailing 
list. It is possible that, if (as it seems) english is your second 
language, you're not aware of the hostile and vicious tone that has 
suffused your posts from about the dozenth in this outrageously long 

The folks involved in discussions of congestion control at various 
periods in the development of the internet have graciously discussed 
this history here. That's all that ever belonged here.
