Or not. I expect that we've seen only the tip of the iceberg on people
who will now post one "I'm here, please don't moderate me" post. NANOG
has how many readers? For those who may have misread Jim's post, he was 
talking about *another* mailing list, not this one, on the moderation 
method mentioned. No sign that this is in effect on nanog.

No matter how much you want to try and spin it,
MySpace is the Paris Hilton of the internet.
