Left Field Subjects
Like all public lists, NANOG gets lots of random stuff sent to it; please don't add to that problem. Here's a sampling off some items out in left field...
Thank you, but please don't. We all read the news, both print and electronic. We usually know when something important is on Digg, Slashdot, CNN, or CNET. We don't care if you think that a relevant topic is a waste of time. We don't even care if you think the world is going to end. Really. We care about the continuous operation of the global Internet.
I hate X,Y, or Z. How can I do A, without using any of them?
Well, sure, some of us would likely sympathize, but definately not for the list. A Usenet group or web forum related to A or your website blog may be a better forum.
How do x-rays from airport security scanning equipment affect network engineers that travel frequently?
We couldn't really tell you since our memories have been erased by all of the radiation exposure. One thing we can tell you for sure is that this is likely a better question for your Physician.
Same goes for executive laptops and airport security concerns.
