Not in this country, bucko. It's a mailing list. Get over yourself.
Usually this list is so interesting, and filled with content, that I
overlook the occasional silliness ("network for sale" comes to mind) in
favor of the rich educational experience that NANOG offers. I can't
believe that you are STILL whining over the fact that you didn't get the
latest coffee cup or tshirt (hey, I'd like a Juniper router as a
giveaway, if there are any left).

Right, you don't want to play politics.

Probably a good thing, in this case.
Congratulations! You've actually made the list. You join ONE other
person from NANOG.
Membership? I never join anything. Subscribe, sure, join, never.
