Gadi's tactics in a nutshell:

1) develop a long-term habit of posting off-topic stuff to nanog
2) get called on it repeatedly
3) challenge what's supposed to be "on-topic" for the mailing list anyway
4) start a new mailing list in an attempt to take real content away from nanog
5) ???
6) profit!

Don't fall for it, people.
