Now, this is really strange. I peer into science careers once in a while, and
I remember some time ago some discussion spreading over from there into 
women-in-bio, and thus the followups here in this group appearing there as 
well. Lately, I have seen nothing of that sort. I just checked all the old
posts from women-in-bio listed by my newsreader, there I found no hints that
they might have appeared in science careers. 

Anyway, if you want to make sure, always check the Newsgroups and Followup-To
in the header of your messages. But then, anyone might post a followup of any
posting in women-in-bio in any other newsgroup they want to. We should be 
aware of that.
