     This has nothing to do with the competency of the folks on the 
nanog list. It's a safe rule in general. Why? Because the stupid on the 
Internet outnumbers all of us. It's just easier to not send clickable 
links then it is to have the call center lit up because your users are 
getting hijacked.
