ATTN: bionet.audiology not automoderated for spam

Dear Audiology readers:

As previewed in a message 25 September and then again 25 November,
bionet.audiology/AUDIOLOGY has been changed from an unmoderated
newsgroup to a newsgroup moderated for spam (only).

"Spam" messages are at the very least distracting to the scientific
discussions which the Biosci newsgroups are designed to facilitate.
We have therefore instituted a combination of software and human
review to filter out the most egregious cases.

The policy we will follow under "automoderation for spam" is outlined
in the 25 September message.  Since we value diversity of opinion in
scientific communications, and recognize that our efforts are
unavoidably subject to both Type I and Type II errors, we aim to err
on the side of allowing arguably scientifically relevant
communications to be posted.

If you encounter problems posting to this newsgroup, please send
messages to biohelp at net.bio.net.  Include a copy of any error messages
you may have gotten back from the biosci mailer.
