job???"  I explain to them the concept of an an archive.

Whats the collective voice of NANOG say, keep it or kill it?

I think we're all big boys (and girls) here and understand that
subscribing to a large, archived mailing list will get your subscription
address on yet another "1,000 MILLION EMAIL ADDRESSES" CD.  I should hope
everyone here can implement, or at least ask for, basic spam filtering.
This isn't your grandmother's crochet chat group; everyone here should be
smart enough to at least glance at the Merit site before subscribing.

If you come in here and say things that make you unattractive as a
prospective employee, tough crap. :)  More jobs for the rest of us.

Has anyone else gotten one of these?  It appears they are trolling
a Nanog archive on the web and sending these out to posters.  *sigh*

Perhaps it should be a nanog AUP violation to archive the list on
the web, and merit could keep a single web archive with the e-mail
addresses removed / altered to prevent this sort of harvesting.
