I just checked out Godwin's law. Sorry.

I'll restate...
If you like packet-dominating, no room for free will LAN protocols, try Token
Ring or FDDI. Of course, these protocols limit LAN size by port count, rather
than by traffic count (if you have tons-o-ports on a T/R network, everybody has
to wait for the token to pass from station to station, thus capping LAN
performance at a certain number of ports).
