Recent Vitamin C discussion

Dear Glyconetters,
  I have noted this morning that about five posts were received by 
the newsgroup on the subject of theories on vitamin C. I think that 
unless this discussion is about the N-glycans of ascorbic acid 
oxidase or about some as yet unknown effects of ascorbic acid on 
glycoprotein structure or function, then this discussion is not 
really within the charter of the bionet.glycosci newsgroup. Since 
these posts appear to have been widely cross-posted, I have written 
(in my capacity of co-discussion leader of this newsgroup) to those 
who have posted on the vitamin C subject requesting that they do not 
cross-post to bionet.glycosci unless the material is relevant to the 
aims of the newsgroup. I have seen other newsgroups innundated with 
other not-directly-relevant posts and wouldn't wish to put people off 
this newsgroup by having too many irrelevant posts here on 
bionet.glycosci. I hope my action meets with the approval of the 
regular readers of this newsgroup. Other extraneous posts have 
appeared on the newsgroup, but if the frequency becomes too high 
compared to the genuine glycoscience questions or discussion then we 
can opt for some form of moderation to screen posts.

  Best regards to all,
  co-discussion leader glycosci newsgroup
