I too am fed up with the spams. One other list I am subscribed to is not
moderated but avoids the problem by only letting subscribers post. This is
done I believe by cross-checking the sender's email address against those
recorded for subscribers. It seems to work very well, avoids the need to
moderate, but I am not sure if it is feasible with the BIONET system.
On the detection of a1-6 Fuc linked to glycoproteins, I think that the lectin
Aleuria aurantia will do this. The original description was by Kobata's group
and it has been used for this by them. I believe that the lectin is sold by
SKK (Seikagaku (?sp)).
