Important news for all the members of the group
Deryck who originally set the group
up has appointed me as moderator of this list.
We have encountered some unpleasant
spam messages recently and there 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 so 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
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 this will make everyone's enjoyment of our group better.
