I agree that it's a more appropriate list. Yet I do wonder if the 
discussion (at least in part), and particularly the original thread 
before the various sub-threads on SC and blacklisting started is not 
appropriate for nanog.

In particular, I feel issues with proxies, trojans, etc and how they are 
dealt with between networks, and their foreseeable threat to the 
infrastructure itself is relevant to the following the the charter:

"# Discuss specific implementation issues which require cooperation and 
coordination among network service providers to ensure the stability of 
overall service to the network users.
# Serve as a focal point for other common activities of the participants.
# Promote and coordinate interconnection of networks within North 
America and to other continents."
