Re: Shock news - NANOG likely to carry less operational content

  • From: William Allen Simpson
  • Date: Fri Jan 14 11:39:08 2000

I've received several of these the past month, with valid operational 
subject lines, and all trying to get me to click and run an .exe.
Good thing I read my email on a Mac!

They are using the operational list persons as targets!  Shall the 
operational folks get together and find them?
