It's essentially a list at this stage.  We were trying to get a
conference together or at least some regular meetings.  Unfortunately we
are pretty busy.

an independant IX? 
Go for it.  A bit surprised you had to ask though.  I mean you could
simply post it on OZ-ISP if you had any concerns anyway - right?

I can't remember that stopping you in the past Phil :)

		  The AusNOG mailing list has been established to
provide a forum for 
		  the exchange of technical information, the discussion
of specific
		  implementation issues that require cooperation among
network service
		  providers, the discussion of operational issues, and
the discussion of 
		  technical issues directly relating to the internet
service provision
		  and telecommunications industry.
		  This is NOT a forum for journalists to pick up leads,
sales people to
		  sell things, or end-users to pester their ISP. Such
behaviour will not 
		  be tolerated (see "Moderation" below).
		  Professional respect:
		  As a list subscriber, you are required to respect the
opinion of
		  others, even if you disagree with it. Healthy debate
on a topic is 
		  good, however personal attacks or flaming will not be
		  It would be worthwhile for new list subscribers to
become familiar
		  with the posters on the list before jumping in. Some
of the guys here 
		  are experts in their field and have spent years
building large-scale
		  networks. Their experience is a resource to be valued.
		  Remember that when you post mail to the AusNOG mailing
list, your post
		  will be received by hundreds, or even thousands, or
your current and 
		  potential peers, customers, suppliers and employers.
Think before
		  posting . you don't want to look foolish in front of
these people as
		  these are the very people you may need to ask for a
job, or a favour, 
		  one day. The list is also publically archived.
		  We ask that list subscribers refrain from using
derogatory language,
		  both towards individuals, and towards companies or
		  (a) Don't quote 50 lines of text and add one line to
it. Quote what is
		  necessary to maintain context, but don't overdo it;
		  (b) Keep your signatures and disclaimers short. It's
no fun seeing
		  signatures that are longer than your posts :-)
		  (c) Do not cross-post to multiple lists;
		  (d) Please don't post in HTML format - it tends to
annoy people who
		  read with text mode clients :-(
		  Please don't :-)
		  Please make sure that if you do use an autoresponder,
it's configured
		  to not autorespond to list e-mail. If it does, your
list membership 
		  will, in all probability, be suspended until it's
		  The AusNOG mailing list is reactively moderated - that
is to say that
		  posts will be delivered to members immediately, but if
the moderators 
		  see the list being abused the abuser(s) will be asked
to refrain from
		  their activities. If the abuser(s) does not cease,
their list
		  subscription will be set to moderated mode, requiring
all future posts
		  to be moderator approved. Further inappropriate
activity may result in
		  the list member being removed.
		  Moderators will be appointed by the list operators in
due course.
		  Moderators will be selected from the list membership,
and will be 
		  listed on this page.
