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.
