As the proposer of bionet.virology which was to be an unmoderated group
I feel we should continue in an unmoderated fashion. In other groups from
time to time articles appear which in my opinion really do not deserve any 
reply and therefore I offer none. This is an extremely democratic system and
each individual should make up their own mind  as to what should be discussed.
A quick search on the net.bio.net gopher using the keywords virology and charter
should show you the original charter of this group. Maybe from time to time
it ought to be published in bionet.virology, although ultimately that ends up
using bandwidth (read space) on the archive


Cheers,



Robert
