$ cat /tmp/nanoglist | wc -l
Ever since I subscribed to the list, I started to get spam. Which is
strange, this email accounts gets (a) staff email, (b) nanog email.
So a bit of snooping showed me that anyone can send the "who nanog" (or
"which nanog", I cant remember which one, I just sent both :-) command
to nanog at merit.edu and lo and behold, the subscriber list came back.
So I'm asking the list admins to please disable the command, so spammers
can't just grab a user list.. and also, for people who run large email
lists, to consider doing the same.
