As a subscriber of several newsgroups I agree in prefering no unrelated mail
being distributed through the groups. This also includes all kinds of
"unsubscribe"/"subscribe" trials and other stuff of no interest.
However, I do not agree on the moderation proposal. If the mail (even when
sexually explicit or whatever stupid credit/job offer is coming in) is not
worth reading, I delete it. I find it rather acceptable to face the fact
that world is imperfect (and crap is being sent through the internet) than
having somebody waisting two hours of his/her life every day to protect us
from seeing it. And after reviewing the last couple of pages of fluoropro
messages I must say that it is not all that bad.
If a software could do the job I would support the idea - as long as
questions about sexual dimorphisms in fluorescent deep sea organisms would
get through anyway. But in general I think we're old enough to be our own
