Dear neuronetters,

                      The offer of George Hammond for quick
publication of your work in a pre-print WWW free "service"
appears sound and fair on a first reading. The message is a-
cademically clear and could attract colleagues. We even did
think so on its first posting some time ago.  However, the
old diplomatic method of making people talk, later evinced
on this list a lot of features of "editor" Hammond that	I
deem important to be known before you decide to submit your
work for such "WWW free preprint publication service".

                    What probably editor Hammond ignored at
that time is that his opinions on technical matters are ea-
sily retrievable on Bionet waismail, so you can establish in
which company your work is to appear on WWW if prepublished
by "editor" Hammond, even if you -as we- lack access to WWW
and have only e-mail (so you, as us, compounds the population
at the highest risk of sending him papers without knowing the
context in which "editor" Hammond will eventually insert them). 

                     Of course he can read your submission,
before publishing it or giving your papers another fate
(but you can trust in his scientific honesty). For reading on
e-mail about Hammond's technical contributions, you ought to
send the following message:

From: <Your e-mail address>
To: waismail at net.bio.net
Subject: <Leave it blank!>
source biosci

 	       (Some other Hammonds can of course appear on
this search).  So, you can decide if your own work is really
attuned to this way of making science. Once delivered it might
be late.
