Lets end this useless thread now.  If it wasn't obvious to everyone
previously, it is definately obvious now.  You're a whining crybaby who
doesn't want to secure his servers for ANY REASON.  No matter that the
technology is there to do so.  No matter that it will NOT cause undue
problems for your customers.  You just want to whine about something.

I'm for one SICK OF IT!  If you don't like being listed in
MAPS/ORBS/NAME-YOUR-LIST, secure your servers.  If you want to complain
about it somewhere, do it someplace where it at least has a chance of
being operational content.

This is NANOG.  Even if you drop the NA prefix, the rest of that means
"NETWORK OPERATORS GROUP."  It does NOT mean "open mailserver operators
group" or anything like it.

So, grow up.  Secure your server.  Contact us from another email address
when you have.  For now, you're <PLONKED!>
