Contemporary mailing list lols aside, I believe you'll find that most
operators in this space are quite serious and professional.

If you're a potential friend of Tor, anonymity networks and the general
thought space around it... and your price [or that of someone you know,
nanog or otherwise, who might be such a friend] was highly competitive,
or even special... I'd be fairly confident that consultation with those on
this list would lead to a sale of said (or related) billable services.

Feel free to forward and/or put any interested parties in touch with this
list or torproject.org.
