Regarding the list moderation, almost exactly a year ago the same
issue was raised and Jerry McLaughlin and I offered to act in this
capacity. After a positive response to the proposal from the list
we wrote to bionet to find out how to do this. Despite repeated
attempts to contact them by e-mail we never received a response.
I still think it is a good idea if only to relieve us of the large
number of commercial and other non-parasitological posts (currently
running at about 50%). I nominate Stephen Kayes and Peter Pappas!
