i already apologized to the moderators for participating in a non- ops thread
here. there are plenty of mailing lists for which botnets are on- topic.
nanog is not one and should not become one. nanog has other useful purposes.

Interestingly enough, I lurk here 99.999% of the time. I comment
on this thread and folks ask to move it to a non-SP mailing list? Perhaps
non-operational, but this certainly has direct implications on SPs and
I'm of the opinion it's quite relevant - well, certainly as relevant as the
past recent threads:

SORBS Contact
New Latop Policies
Fingerprinting and SPAM ID
MPLS Gear for Outside Plant
[perhaps] Fedex Contact
Citrix Load-balancing
Detecting Parked Domains

I suppose it's more "what I feel like reading and sending email about", as
opposed to whether/what's on topic or not. I'm done with this thread on
NANOG - else the slew of "me too" responses on this "list moderator" thread
will divert attention from alternative cruft...

Wondering if I should send a message to NANOG every time I see a thread
of questionable NANOG relevance,
