It was Christmas 1999 that www.bio.net moved from Stanford University to
HGMP in the UK. We have managed to convert a few more groups to being moderated
and have added an alternative method, to make the moderation process simpler
for the moderators.
About 60% of the bionet groups are moderated, although bionet.software.gcg is not
one of them.
