It seems that more than just a few of us were spammed by Glenn Stern 
(, an employee of Calient following NANOG 70.

The spammer had the balls to say, in his email:

>  We do not know each other. I'm leveraging the attendee list for NANOG to 
> reach out and raise awareness of the value of OCS (Optical Circuit Switching) 
> in the data center and in particular, the Carrier Neutral Hotel where we've 
> been active with next generation MeetMeRoom discussions.

He does not show as an attendee at NANOG, but another executive, David 
Altstaetter, did register, and may have even shown up. 
Hopefully those of you who have traditional community attitudes will show your 
reaction via your pocketbooks.

Maybe its time for the NANOG board and staff to step in, and develop some teeth 
to use in cases like these? Unless the majority of you members are cool with 
unfettered spamming of member and attendee lists. In which case, have at it!
