What standard warning and education? We have filters to stop spam making it to the list. But there is definitely a spamming problem of sorts amongst vendors, to subscriber addresses. I see something every couple of months that I can track back to NANOG, or ARIN. What I *know* is that if you open the door, and ignore it with vendors on NANOG, the list members will end up having a problem. If you want to know why I consider myself an expert, feel free to ask me offline about what the attitude that those of us who ran "the backbone" in 1994 had - and how that worked out. On the other hand, as a senior citizen, at the end of my tech days, with enable grudgingly given up, I guess I could turn away and say "not my problem, really".
