NANOG Channel Archives and Editorializing

  • From: Eric Germann
  • Date: Wed Aug 05 21:00:40 1998

Folks,

I've received periodic requests from individuals who feel somehow slighted
by posts contained in the NANOG archives.  As you may or may not know, we
host a MHonArc'd version of the list as a Searchable archive of web pages
and an IE/NEtCaster Channel.

A request came in today to remove a post that listed a number of hosts open
for relaying.  The individual asked me to remove the message so as to
minimize the damage it causes the owners of the listed relays, including
himself.

Since these are generated from the flat archives at Merit, I'm loath to
start editorializing.  What do folks think?  Should we edit the archives to
remove "dangerous" information, or let them stand on their merits (no pun
intended) and let the roaches scatter in the light?

Respond privately unless you absolutely feel a need to start a discussion
on it.  I'll post the decision I come to on the list.

Eric
