Times have indeed changed.  Four or five years ago when I first subscribed
to bionet.general there was virtually no SPAM and each inappropriate
posting was chastized severely by Dave.  It is probably way past time for
this group to become moderated.  There still may be hope that useful
discussions may be persued here.
