gofriends is now moderated


Mon Mar 12 11:45:04 PST 2001


Hello,

GOFriends is now a moderated mailing list.  Post messages in the same
manor you have in the past.  The only change is that the message will
be read by a human first and then forwarded on to the list.  Thus
there can, and will generally be, a delay between the time you send
the message and when it appears in the email of all the list
subscribers.

Hopefully, you all have missed the mail firestorm this morning on the
ecocyc mailing lists.  Someone from EBI seemed to have started this
storm by complaining about a single SPAM message.  That person named
gofriends as part of the problem.  There was one message "Subject:
FREE Biotech Stock Info!" on Sunday. The result was so many bozos, on
the ecocyc list, started sending messages to the lists saying take me
off this list.  I received a hundred such messages.  Thankfully the
original message from EBI was sent to go at geneontology.org, which is
moderated so you were all spared these senseless messages.

To remove all possibility that gofriends would be mentioned in such a
negative way again, or that bozos would disrupt everyone with their
stupid messages, I have turned on moderation of the gofriends list.
The GO email list has been moderated for sometime with no complaints.

If you wish to unsubscribe to the gofriends at geneontology.org mailing
list send a message to:

  gofriends-request at geneontology.org

in the message just include the word : unsubscribe

Mike
