Moderate Immunology?

This same suggestion came up today in Women-in-Bio.  Its sad that people
can't seem to keep posts where they belong.  

I myself find it quite easy to skip thru all the subject headers I feel
are not topical, so I don't mind either way.  But if the news group is
to become moderated, a list of guidelines for posting should be drawn
up.  

Another way to deal with this is lots of news readers allow killfiles to
be set up - you can set it up so anything with certain subjects (XXX,
teen, porn, etc.) can be automatically deleted, as well as posts that go
to a large number of seemingly unrelated groups.

Hope that helps for the time being.
