[outages] TcpDump.org ? Cogent ? Something else ?

Fair enough... I can see the same thing from here as well but not having any
issues reaching the site - is this kind of "outage" acceptable to this list?
Perhaps I am misunderstanding the purpose of this list (I'm thinking major
site outages, major network outages etc)?

--As for the rest, it is mine.

Just that a 50% loss rate and a *4 second* ping time aren't considered
'normal' for most networks.  ;)  (And are usually a sign of something
seriously wrong someplace...)  Oh: and 'host unreachable' isn't the same as
'filtered from the host': It means the previous hop doesn't know how to send
the packet on.  (Traceroute would normally show a filtered/lost ping as a
splat.  H! means it got back a reply saying that the host was
unreachable.)

I'm seeing the same thing here, from a Comcast 'business' connection:
