I am one of those pests you just can't get rid of, Bill.
However, to be a sophist for a moment, "North American Network
Operators' Group" can still include me, since, while the
network here isn't North American, there is technically a
North American involved in operating it. (Heck, a colleague
of mine is *in* North America richt now, even)
I think the operative phrase is North American Network...
Not networks that have north americans on staff or bits and
pieces of gear on the continent.
(Quick quiz: where does schnell.ebone.net live?)
In the hearts and minds of its parents and friends.
..so like don't knock the people providing actual content on this list. --
Not even. And to that end, I would suggest that folks use the
respective mailing lists for coordinating activities at exchanges
and not broadcast to nanog/com-priv email of the form:
I've lost your email address Sean, can you please contact me?
