  It is my opinion that one has the power to self-moderate
  quite effectively.

  Procmail enables one to delete the ramblings of noiseful
  posters, while still preserving the amusement so many
  serious networking folk gain from nanog.

  'man procmail'

  The joy of this internet thing we've created is that we can
  selectively enforce the ear-plugging.

  I don't think moderation is appropriate.

NANOG list maintainers:
Please consider this a formal request to moderate this list.
The signal/noise ratio is horrible as it is, and continuing
to ignore off-topic posts, such as the thread on DNS policy,
is compounding the issue.
I would appreciate a response on this issue asap.

Otherwise, I would fully expect to see an exodus of list
participants who can no longer tolerate noise.
