Keeping the list on-topic
- From: Steve Gibbard

Just a quick reminder that this is a list for discussing Internet
operations. Topics that don't have to do with Internet operations should be
Operational topics might include how to provide connectivity to networks in
China (although that could arguably fall outside the North American part of the
list name), how to provide or restore connectivity to hurricane damaged
regions, and how to connect to Google, as well as all sorts of other
operational topics that we're hopefully all familiar with.
Non-operational topics, which may be important but should be discussed
elsewhere, include civil rights in China, charity fundraising, and
Google's hiring practices (unless there end up being so many network
operators working for Google that there's nobody left to operate the rest
of the Internet...).
That somebody else is posting off-topic stuff doesn't mean you should too,
even if they're blatantly wrong about civil rights in China, or who works
for Google, or whether their non-profit needs money, and even if that
makes you angry.
Please exercise a bit of self-control. Your fellow list members will
appreciate it, as will the list administrators.
