I help new operators but I don't want to too much peers
because it consumes bandwith and CPU. Therefore when I establish
partnership with a new operator I search the highest degree
node in my neighborhood then I send a depeering notice to the owner.
I want to keep my
degree under 20.
(If everyone was following this principle the graph would become much more balanced automatically. :-)
