I have several times had to contact admin-c people, and generally found that more often than not they had no idea where I had gotten their name from and what they had to do with it. In one case the phone number listed was the "secret emergency mobile phone" of the CEO for a $1B multinational company, but he was very polite about it :-) I generally assume that the admin-c would be able to kick the tech-c around if need be. I also generally assume that issues of legal and/or political substance belongs with the admin-c rather than the tech-c. I've had a couple of cases where a tech-c was way out of bounds (hacking, mail-bombing etc etc), and complaining to the tech-c is unlikely to work in such cases, in both cases the admin-c handled the case. It would be nice if the admin-c represented a management capability (in the legal sense of the concept) for the org/company. -- Poul-Henning Kamp FreeBSD coreteam member phk at FreeBSD.ORG "Real hackers run -current on their laptop."
