> Deryck who originally set the group up has appointed me as
> of this list.
> We have encountered some unpleasant spam messages recently and
> have been inappropriate things like links to betting and porn sites
> placed on the list's webpage.
> Starting right now the procedure for new members has been changed
> that I have to approve anyone before they can join the list. Also
> their first posting will be approved before it appears on the list,
> this will mean that 99% of spam messages will be eliminated.
> Also I've been to the management page and removed the previously
> mentioned links that were on there. When I have some time I'll go
> back through the message archive and get rid of any more I find
> None of the above will affect existing members in any way, you can
> carry on posting and reading messages in the normal way. I hope
> will make everyone's enjoyment of our group better.
