I am sending this out one last time in the event that you missed the
previous postings.  If you have already responded, please ignore this
message.  If you have not replied to the survey, please send in your
response ASAP.  I apologize for having to bother our users with this
but well over 1000 sites now get the bionet groups on USENET and this
is the only way that we can try to get a handle on what our readership
really is.  The results are reported to NIH and will be posted on the
newsgroup.  Please read the information below before responding.

Thanks for your support!

It's time for me to collect usage statistics on the BIOSCI/bionet.*
newsgroups once again to help justify our existence.  I would greatly
appreciate your prompt response to this message.  All I need are two
quick items:

1) a one sentence note saying that you saw this message.  PLEASE DO
   NOT REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE DIRECTLY as it may send copies of your
   reply to everyone on the newsgroup if your copy passes through the
   IRLEARN BIOSCI node.  Instead, please send your response to any of the
   addresses below:

Address					Location	Network
-------					--------	-------
biovote at			Ireland		EARN/BITNET
biovote at			U.K.		JANET
biovote at			Sweden		Internet
biovote at			U.S.A. 		Internet/BITNET

Please send in ONLY ONE RESPONSE per user (duplicate votes will be
filtered out).  Also I only count the actual sender of the message.
Messages saying that "5000 people at my site read BIOSCI newsgroups"
only count as one response in the final tally.

2) I would also like to gather a second fact this time around.  Please
   indicate whether you saw this note by reading it in your e-mail or by
   reading it with newsreading software.  If you use newsreading
   software, I would appreciate knowing what program you use to access
   BIOSCI bulletins.
