Sorry for the noise.

I emailed -futures registering my interests for such a list, and it  
got a mixed response.  It's a shame, as like you I would like to see  
a busy, interesting, mail operations list, and derive value from one.

I think that it will always be to controversial to start a nanog  
'branded' mail operators list.  I also understand why the MAAWG lists  
are run as a closed system, but recognise this prevents smaller sites  
from taking part.

When discussing this with folks on -futures or irc people agree that  
a public mail operations list might be a good experiment, so I have  
just created one
