I'll keep this short and simple.

The reason Susan and I are considering going to a moderated format
is for one reason, and one reason only: To keep non-audiology spam posts
out of the newsgroup.  If participants want to drag out discussions to a
point where we don't remember what the original question was (ie. the
impedence topic) can do so, because we don't really care.

Let me explain why the BIOSCI/BIONET administration is coming from:

The BIOSCI realm on USENET is funded by a governmental grant to exchange
of scientific ideas.  Part of the grant prohibits the use of the newsgroup
realm to market commerical products.  Solicitation by manufacturers goes
against the bylaws established by the agency funding the grant.
