Graham Clark, who initially proposed moderating the Parasitology listserve,
has been inquiring to the listserve contractor about doing so a number of
times since his original posting.  He has received assurance that this can
be done, and that the listserve's charter is being changed appropriately.
Hopefully, details about mechanisms for posting and re-posting can be more
rapidly defined, and possible related costs addressed.  I have agreed to
serve as a back-up moderator, for off-hours and when Graham is unavailable.
Graham just sent me another copy of his most recent inquiry (yesterday) to
the majordomo, since we all have also noticed the even greater recent
proliferation of sex- and product-oriented spams. We all also hope that
Graham and the majordomo can resolve this issue rapidly!
