This is highly inaccurate. The PC and Board have done everything in our
power to keep sponsorship out of the program. Yes, Beer & Gear looks like a
NASCAR race, but that helps fund not only the program, but the numerous
other outreach programs that NANOG has undertaken.

Sponsors who have stepped on the rules have had their sponsorship rights
revoked - temporarily, and in egregious cases, permanently. We (the NANOG
organization) take this incredibly seriously.

While it's hard to solve for the exact case above (scraping registrant
lists and then comparing to CRM to glean contact info) we absolutely do
aggressively pursue any abuse of NANOG's attendee information, trademarks,
and mailing list.

Is it too simple a solution to post a warning on the page above the Attendee List saying something along the lines of "scraping the Attendee List for marketing purposes is forbidden, will result in public shaming, and may cause some attendees to completely boycott your company." ?
