moderation works in that all posts to bionet.microbiology will have to
be screened manually for content by the moderators before they appear
on the web. While not fool-proof, this will lead to a reduction of
unrelated or unsuitable messages, such as spam. A few newsgroups have
moderation status. The advantages are that one has to deal with less
unrelated posts, the disadvantages are that moderation will cause a
delay in the message appearing on the net. 

My repeated requests to the folks at bio-net.net to establish
moderation status have gone unanswered, which is annoying because I
already have assembled a team of moderators ready and willing to
perform this service to our community.
