We have seen that many people *posting* do not have the best of intentions;
I can assure you that there are lurkers on Nanog (surprise, surprise) who
are not nearly as naive and well-intentioned as J. O. would hope. In fact,

on other lists.
And after being /.ed several times, there are undoubtedly end-users,
small enterprises, non-network folks from networking companies, and
assorted other groups which don't fit the traditional network operator mold.
Oh, and sales people...
