> There are valid reasons to run a public telnetd. telnet nethack.alt.org for example.
Also, telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl for some entertainment.

Regarding the graph, plotting the relation between ssh and telnetd would be nice. I spot-checked the year 2007, which for some reason saw the doubling of the telnetd numbers. sshd installations increased by a much higher factor.
