BioSci statistics from LISTSERV

Here are some statistics of the number of mailings that have been
made to the BioSci lists on LISTSERV. The number of people who are
subscribed to the different lists and the total mail sent since the
lists were established. There is an obvious trend that those lists that
have many subscribers are also the most active. Some lists are new lists
while others have been established for a considerable period of time.

It was rather a surprise to discover that LISTSERV has handled close
to HALF A MILLION messages. To amuse myself I imagined that there had 
been 1000 bounced mail messages (a gross over estimate) and then I 
worked out the percentage of bounced mail to the total.
It turns out to be 0.20189%... and this is what people remember:-)
