Dear CNS/X-plor users,

The X-plor/CNS support newsgroup bionet.software.x-plor=20
(simultaneously a mailing list x-plor at hgmp.mrc.ac.uk) has in recent=20
years increasingly been target for unrelated postings ("spam"). Many=20
users and CNS-experts have therefore unsubscribed from the list=20
and/or use it rarely.=20

I took the freedom to create a new moderated mailing list, which=20
forwards messages from bionet.software.x-plor. Messages not related=20
to Structural Biology are manually filtered out and only then=20
forwarded to the list members. This way one can again "dare" to=20
follow and participate in discussions on CNS/X-plor.=20

The list address of the moderated list is cnsbb at yahoogroups.com. To=20
subscribe to this list send an e-mail to=20
cnsbb-subscribe at yahoogroups.com. The homepage of the list is=20
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cnsbb. If you hate advertisements,=20
you'll find an ads-free list archive at=20
http://chips.csb.ki.se/cnsbb/. Please be aware that postings to this=20
new list are not forwarded to bionet.software.x-plor /=20
x-plor at hgmp.mrc.ac.uk. Moderating is very easy, but requires manual=20
interaction. If you would be ready to co-moderate the list let me=20
please know.

I'm not sure about the level of support, which will be offered on the=20
X-plor list in the future, even if there would be no spam anymore.=20
The intensity of discussions or rather the lack of them are somewhat=20
disillusioning ... We use CNS a lot in our group and would certainly=20
have benefit of a functioning support forum.
