GenBank BIO-MATRIX list off-line

I have taken the BIO-MATRIX e-mail distribution at GenBank off-line
since the "Authorization" bouncers are continuing to come through.
Unfortunately those on the GenBank "send me all BIOSCI newsgroups"
list will continue to get hit.  Also unfortunately European
subscribers will probably wake up to 20 or so copies of this message
in their mailbox tomorrow.  We sent warnings to the European BIOSCI
sites when this was discovered but it was late in the day their time.
Once again this problem is due to LISTSERV at IRLEARN snapping up an
error message from the UK and reflecting it to the list.  We have
proposed solutions for this in the past, and I continue to hope that
they will be implemented.  Steps are in progress at other BIOSCI sites
to prevent this kind of situation, and we have been more than patient
to date.  We can't afford to continue much longer and allow this kind
of problem to irritate our users.
