Hi -

As promised, here is the NANOG mailing list that was agreed to at the Tampa
NANOG. This AUP is also up on the web:

We have set up a nanog-announce mailing list under majordomo.  If you are
on the nanog mailing list there is no need to subscribe; you will get the
announcements.  The nanog-announce mailing list is for those of you who
ONLY want to get the nanog meeting annoucements.  So, you do not need to be
on both lists.  To subscribe to the nanog-announce list, send a message to
majordomo at and follow the directions.

Cheers -

NANOG Mailing List Charter 

The NANOG mailing list is established to provide a forum for the exchange
of technical information and the discussion of specific implementation
issues that require cooperation among network service providers.  In order
to continue to provide a useful forum for discussion of relevant technical
issues, the list will now be governed by the following guidelines: 

Acceptable Use Policy

1. Discussion will focus on Internet operational and technical issues
   as described in the charter of NANOG.
2. Postings of issues inconsistent with the charter are prohibited.
3. Postings to multiple mailing lists are discouraged.
4. Postings that include foul language, character assassination, and
   lack of respect for other participants are prohibited.
5. Blatant product marketing is unacceptable.
6. Postings of political, philosophical, and legal nature are discouraged.

Individuals who violate these guidelines will be contacted personally and
asked to adhere to the guidelines.  If an individual persists in violating
the guidelines, the convenor of NANOG, Merit Network, Inc., will take
action to filter the offender's messages to the list.   

If groups of individuals persist in introducing topics that are outside
the charter of NANOG, the convenor will send a request to the entire
mailing list requesting adherence to the guidelines.  If the discussion
continues unabated, the convenor will take action to filter all postings
on the topic.
