I'm not sure who this "we" is. I am the sole moderator to my knowledge
and the above is my humble opinion. I will not be drawn further on
the subject.

May I take this thread as an opportunity to ask whether the group
wishes to propose another moderator for this list. I have been doing
it as a courtesy but would be delighted to step aside and let someone
whom the group feels more appropriate do so. I have considered
asking this for some time. Any volunteers should not be of a
sensitive disposition, moderation should not unduly favour any
particular worldwide timezone and should be a 7 day per week task.
Trusted stand-ins should be organised during any absence.

That is not a whinge. I moderate many other groups and will continue to
do so. Maybe I should have posted this to bionet.jobs.offered
