The following postings have been cancelled in several bionet.* groups
because they are "spam". The Breidbart Index (BI) is 14 in the
bionet.* groups that I read.

I realize that this is a kind of rogue cancel. Therefore I propose
that the Breidbart Index from which a posting is cancellable in the
bionet.* hierarchy should be lowered to 10. (For a definition of the
Breidbart Index, see the "spam faq", regularly posted to news.answers.)
While in the "big 8" the maximal BI is 20, several local hierarchies
(e.g. the German newsgroups, de.*) have lower thresholds.

Comments?
