These are the sort of helpful answers that make it clear that people do
at least sporadically use the service.  I didn't see anything useful in
the week of logs I reviewed, but activity like that described above is
probably reasonably 'spiky' and I'm not surprised I missed it.

It sounds like the service should probably stay open.  I would have been
happy to restrict something that is only a spam attractor, but if it's
more than that, than I'm happy people find it a useful service.  If the
teams who do use it think it can still be useful and be restricted,
that's a discussion I still think is worth having, but I don't think we
need to rush towards it.
