This has veered from operational discussion into the realm of
meta-discussion about the list, so let's move it to nanog-futures.  
Reply-to has been set accordingly in this email, please respect it.

acceptable on the list. Mail operations are on-topic, although 
tangentially. Spam filtering is definitely off-topic.
