Hi Bill,
I wouldn´t like to see such a service on a commercial basis. It exploits the
BIONET for making money with the expertise of contributers who are not
compensated for it. I guess it will stop many people from using BIONET
newsgroups as a free discussion forum. BIONET people will not be amused.
