This is old news, Bill. If anyone wants to sit around and pump
out botnet lists to NANOG, fine by me. I never said I can 
stop them. I just said I didn't want them as a subscriber. 

I understand that you don't know where these existing
lists are. Look hard. If you suddenly care about bots
enough in the last 24 hours to spend all night writing 
a post about me, you should be able to expend the same
energy and find a botnet list to enjoy.

Gadi probably has already invited you to his list
in the last 8 hours. He's good like that.
