ATTN: Newsgroup posting problems

As some of you in the three newsgroups now being moderated for spam --
women-in-bio, audiology, and mycology -- have realized, not all the
messages posted to your group have not been getting through.

Over the weekend we found one baffling problem -- the "Newsgroups: "
header for messages is either not being included by all mail systems,
or some piece of code in our system is stripping it out.  When we go
in and manually insert this header, the messages go where they're
supposed to go.  We have not yet figured out why this is happening,
but until we do we will be hand processing your newsgroup's messages.
Messages should not suffer more than a 24-hour delay, and rarely more
than a 12-hour delay.

If, however, a message you posts does not appear within 24 hours,
please notify us at nospam at net.bio.net immediately. 

EVEN BETTER, please "cc:" us at nospam at net.bio.net so we can
continuously check.  This may not be the only problem, but it appears
to be the main culprit now.

We appreciate your help,
