I just crushed John's foot accidently with my chair, so he wants to know if
we're even?

Dear Robert;

I feel that this is not appropriate for this list.

Anyone on this list might have valid or nefarious reasons to wish to  
DOS someone else. This
list is not an appropriate means of organizing that.

I have not received such mail.

I have no way of verifying whether or not you have.

I don't know J.L. and don't even see him as a contributor to this list.

Now, I know you, but there are way too many people on this list to  
know them all, or for them to
all know you (or me, or anyone else). And, email addresses can be  
spoofed. And, not everyone reads NANOG
faithfully all the time, so a spoof might not be detected for some time.

I think you can see the potential for mischief here.
