Re: spam whore, norcal-systems.net

Nanog is not a proper forum for spam discussion or spam announcements.

A bunch of us on all sides of the issue agreed on this.  Use spam-l or one
of the other lists.

In response, I get my one shot: (thanks)

This kind of monitoring is probably a direct violation of 18 USC 2511, as
is a public announcement of the monitoring results. Indeed, at present, I'd
say it appears to be the best example of an unauthorized 3rd party
violation I've seen so far. (most [all previous] people don't admit
details, but we know some do it). Unless of course you have authorization
from norcal or all the recipients of those 2 million packets to monitor.
Since norcal isn't your customer, I don't suppose you have any paper
showing they gave you permission to collect and publish information about
their traffic.

Its too late to take back your post.  Think first.
