          Thankyou to all of those who explained to me the proper use of this newsgroup. I now have a 
much better idea as to the problems being created by all the "unscientific" and "lay" postings to this 
newsgroup. For all of us not virologists-let's just read the stuff and "Post No More". I was wrong and I 
humbly apologize. Keep up the good work virologists! I have a feeling that you folks are going to 
become ever more important as time goes forth! I truly hope you are all appreciated. Thanks. jr
