Yep, that was Vlad's point about that being added to the URL when sending to NSQ. :)

I think what makes the most sense here would be to fork off the ElasticSearch plugin and create an NSQ specific plugin.  If someone wanted to go crazy with options, I could imagine even making a generic HTTP writer plugin as you suggested earlier.  I suspect that it would be quite hard to get that right for any number of different HTTP endpoints.  It probably makes more sense to just tailor for whatever is receiving logs on the other end.
