I have heard that some states legislated the ban of emailing as a tool of 
commercial advertising, and I guess this trend will spread out other 
states too in the future.  In the mean time, those who read 
bionet.molbio.yeast with web browsers or newsgroup reader softwares could 
simply ignore and do not read "lewd" postings.  What about those who 
subscribe to this mailing list like me?  Here's one tip!

In these days, most email softwares are sophisticated so that users can 
make rules or actions (like script file).  The trick is that most lewd 
and commercial messages are being posted repeatedly by a small number of 
people.  So I made it a rule for my email software (Claris Emailer 2.0) 
to check sender's email address to my "black list" and "trash" unwanted 
messages :-)) if they match.  This way I hardly see unwanted messages 
unless I dig out my own email trash.
