NANOG Mailing List

Hello -

I would like to ask that we all take a deep breath and refrain from the
attacks, retaliations from attacks, and the subsequent comments on the
attacks. This will not likely lead to anything good.

It seems to me that we have an issue about the appropriate use of the NANOG
mailing list forum. I would like to suggest that during the open session
Friday afternoon we spawn a small group to draft a nanog mailing list AUP,
and perhaps draft a charter for a couple of new nanog-XXX lists. We can
then post the document to the nanog list(s) and implement the policy.

sounds like the most reasonable thing I've heard of yet. at 7:30 AM
Wednesday
I left for the Valley, at 4:30 PM I returned to NH. In that 72 hour
period I
received 277 email messages. 198 were from nanog, 20 from ietf-coredb,
27 from
my own org, and 31 from misc. out of the 198 from nanog, most was
drivel and
response to drivel. if this were fm radio i'd say nanogs' deviation is
at 40%.
simply put, don't reply to the drivel and it will eventually go away.
