I haven't seen spams appearing only on the bionet
groups. It depends a lot on what other groups you

One of the bionet groups which has a rather high
signal-to-spam ratio is bionet.software, and I think
the reason for that is simply that the name contains
the word "software". Compared with that, 7tms_r is
relatively free of spams, except those posted usenet-

As far as I know, cancelbots, global cancels, etc. run
globally, so there should be no difference between "normal"
and the bionet newsgroups.

In addition, you might work on your wording :-)
