Not true at all (unless you weren't here when the real thing begun).
Moderation-related postings have been less than 20 from the time it

How in the world could we know that anyone is interested in moderation, if
we do not communicate within the group? BTW, at least this is an argument
which is pertinent to the newsgroup itself, even if not to virology.
Moreover, I think no one would then accept to become a moderator without
knowing if that would be accepted by the subscribers, as well as, I think,
somebody could be not particularly pleased to discover one day that the
group was moderated upon decision taken by private e-mail. You should
better say if you are pro or against instead of flaming (which notoriously
doesn't gain anything but more flames).
