For what it's worth, while I did see all of these that made it through 
the list itself, the larger portion that I saw did not come through the 
list but were sent directly to me, and the Received header trail shows 
that those did not come through the nanog mailman.  So I applaud what 
you do with the list itself, but it wouldn't have made (and won't make, 
in the future) much difference, since e-mails were sent out bypassing 
the list server.

And thanks for this note.
