Update from the NANOG Communications Committee regarding recent off-topic posts

As a quick update, we've implemented some list settings last week to help

keep spam off the list. New subscribers are moderated until we're
with their posts. We rejected the idea of keyword based message filtering
since not only is a lot of work to maintain, it's trivial to get around it
you really want to post banned words.
Comments and suggestions are welcome.

I've always liked the idea found in xkcd.com/810 ;-).


On list spam has been minimal but off list cold call type emails have
been mounting for several months
