  Also, RADIUS is a *lot* more complicated than DNS and DHCP.  It takes
more effort to understand and configure.  This results in an increased
level of frustration for the new user, compare to DNS or DHCP.

  I've actually been doing that for a while now...

  I've been saying this for nearly 10 years now, and the proof is in
public list archives.  Nearly anyone who asks a good question and
provides the requested information can get their problem solved.  The
people who *argue* with the answers they receive get ignored, or get
told to stop being rude.

  This is (somehow) perceived as having a hostile list.  <sigh>
