Thing is, I had already heard about the facebook worm via my other 
sources of info (and a day earlier); same as anyone else who is paying 
attention to such subjects did.

When info like this is spread across multiple lists/sites, the second 
and subsequent times it is noise instead of signal.

I lurk on nanog because of what it focuses on.

Turning nanog into a rehash of digg's technology section or the front 
page of news.com reduces nanog's utility.
