	Are the contents of the nanog list so incredibly important  
that we must get delivery within 5 minutes or less?  If it takes
longer than 5 minutes to propagate, do you get your post free?

	Oh wait, the list is already free...hmm.  If you want 
near-instantaneous mail delivery, you can have it -- for a fee.
As in all things, you get what you pay for.

	Personally, I am quite happy with the list as is -- the new list
setup is a vast improvement over what things were just a few months
ago.  I'm not about to complain over a few minutes.  How many of us 
check our email every few minutes anyway?

	Perhaps the delay will encourage people to wait, and consider
their post before jumping on a thread -- that seems to be the real
culprit.
