    I don't operate even a mid-size network, but when there's an outage that
    effects more than a handful of locations, it's useful to know about it...

    Not that there's anything I can do about it... but when customers are
    calling and asking why they can't reach their application servers, it's
    nice to be able to tell them there's a problem at $location and that no, I
    don't know when it'll be fixed, but they can be sure it's being worked on.

    Sure, I can tell 'em that there's no problem with our network, and that our
    connectivity is fine... and leave them to figure out if there's a break
    someplace - and I do.

    But I think NANOG is certainly an appropriate forum for medium/large-scale
    outages - unless someone's created an outage list someplace.

    I will agree that it's not the place to bitch about a vendor not giving
    more specifics, dumping on vendors in any way, actually...
