So I decided to respond to a message earlier - was the first time in 
quite a while on the NANOG list.  Like, we're talking maybe 3-6 months 
since my last post?

This afternoon I get an e-mail from Brad Lovelace 
<brad at networkequipment.net> asking me if I have cisco, juniper, etc to 
sell to his company, claimed I have done business with him before (even 
though I've never sold any equipment to them, nor have we ever 
communicated before - my e-mail archives go back to 1996 or so).

Isn't the first time I've been contacted by a networking gear vendor 
after they 'mysteriously' got my e-mail address (shortly after I posted 
a comment here) as someone who was interested in their wares.

We may have someone scraping e-mail addresses and names from the nanog 
list - don't suppose the mods might be so gracious enough to look at the 
sub list and see if anyone from networkequipment.net is on here?

Sorry in advance to go somewhat OT.
