This is alt.forestry.  Your original post was cross-posted here (otherwise
I would've never seen it).  If you don't me to respond to your posts,
don't post to alt.forestry.

alt.forestry is not moderated.  The fact that you cross-posted to a
moderated group doesn't change that.

Why did you post here, anyway?

Go for it, I'll tell them the same thing I'm telling you - I'm reading
it in alt.forestry.  If you don't want responses, don't cross post here.
You can't transmorgify alt.forestry simply by cross-posting to a
moderated group.

As moderator of your newgroup, you should keep that in mind before
posting ad hominem insults, then, shouldn't you.  Or does Stanford
support different rules for moderators and participants?

I have no interest in bionet, but will continue to read alt.forestry.
