I believe there are those who would argue that there's already a  
surfeit of discussion on NANOG, quite a bit of it irrelevant and of  
little interest to many subscribers.

Posting stats and reports to a list which contains people who may not  
be interested in same often results in those stats and reports being  
filtered out and ignored.  Posting a pointer to said stats and lists  
so that interested parties can subscribe if they so choose guarantees  
a community of common interests to whom discussion of the topic(s) at  
hand will come naturally, without the need for artificial stimulus.

Any information security mechanism, process, or procedure which can
be consistently defeated by the successful application of a single
class of attacks must be considered fatally flawed.
