RE: [802.3ae] HOW DO I JOIN the forum?

The reflectors will not be restricted.  IEEE membership would be an
unacceptable restriction on our requirements for maintaining an open

I am sure most of you understand it is virtually impossible to keep ahead of
spammers and maintain openness.  Our volunteers do a good job updating
filters to keep the volume of spam down, but some will still get through.
As annoying as it is, please just continue to hit delete on any spam that
gets through, and not add to the number of non-technical (i.e., not 802.3ae
related) messages.

I would like to see a protected from junk mails (job seekers, sales
pitch...) but yet an open 802.3ae forum. I realized this may not be easy,
but for some people who individually are not members but belong to an
organization that is a member, they would like to be kept in the loop of
updates and discussions from the reflector. At least those with an email
domain name that matches a member company should be allowed to be kept in
the reflector.

You raised an excellent idea.

Perhaps, the IEEE should enforce a new condition to
become a member in future Reflectors: to be a member
of the IEEE in good standing (i.e., paid annual
membership fees). I think that this requisite
could filter out most of those interested in
joining a IEEE Reflector for spurious purposes,
like sending junk email.
